Zagreb City Museum

A museum of the city itself. It hosts a huge collection of artefacts from the history of Zagreb, and it's the best place to get info or insight of how was to live in Zagreb in the last few centuries. It will wow you with its presentation on the progression of Zagreb as a city and Croatia as an independent country in the 20th century.

The museum is comprised of the Convent of St. Clair, a tower from the 1100s, and a 17th century granary, and is built along the eastern town wall. It has been in operation since 1907 and houses 12 collections which include almost 75,000 pieces. Together the collections describe the history of Zagreb through documents, maps, art, archeological finds, and other historical pieces. It's placed in the old Upper town, which itself is magical. So a walk around the Upper town and visiting the Zagreb City Musem is a must. Currently it hosts an exhibition on Zagreb and film making called "City of Film - Dream Factory"

We recommend visiting Zagreb City Museum as a great starting point of your exploration of Zagreb. Be sure not to miss it!

The museum is located in 20 Opatička Street and is open Tuesday to Sunday. For more info visit the official website of the museum.
