If you have an unplanned two hours, this place is worth a visit to not only understand the history of Zagreb but also Croatia. While many of the descriptions are not translated, the ones that are, are largely interesting, and the aren't offer displays that...More

The museum is atop a long flight of stairs from the top of Tkalčićeva ulica, the pedestrian-only street of bistros and bars. The view itself is illuminating. The museum has only a few English translations. The exhibition is not at all linear or chronological and...More

Excellent museum, we spent nearly two hours looking around which was a surprise from the outside. The museum is ordered chronologically and includes some really interesting pieces. Explanations of the main time periods are in English, although individual items are catalogue only in Croatian. Items...More

The reviews led me to expect that this would be a special experience. Wrong! It is a very conventional history museum - lots of objects in glass cases, no interactive material. The large number of rooms covering earlier periods manage to almost completely neglect the...More

A full recommendation even with smaller children (aged 6-10). Lots of detailed city models; great setup of sculptures taken from the Kathedrale; theme rooms and time based rooms. Cheap family entrance fee of 50kn for family with all kids aged 15 or under.

This is a huge and very uncrowded museum. I spent about 3 hours there, and easily could have spent more time. The museum provides the history of Zagreb from the beginning to the war, providing tons of information and artifacts. There are summaries of each...More

This museum describes the history of the city from prehistoric times to modern day. There are some overviews in English, but most of the displays have no English labels. I suspect the audioguide would be helpful, but I didn't realize they were available until after...More

The museum's website confirms it will be closed on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, but oddly not Good Friday
