The Croatian capital is a hotbed of arts and culture, and this rich history is reflected in its vast and varied selection of museums and galleries. Start your tour of Zagreb’s top museums with a journey through Croatian history at the Archaeological Museum, where the 78,000-object collection includes a number of rare finds. Next, make your way to the Croatian History Museum, which chronicles the country’s cultural heritage from medieval times to present day, and the Technical Museum, which houses everything from vintage cars to a World War II submarine, and even an 80-year-old snowmobile. The innovative Museum of Broken Relationships is another popular choice, showcasing a heart-warming collection of letters, keepsakes, mementos and personal stories, chronicling love and heartbreak around the world.

While Zagreb doesn’t have a National Art Gallery, art enthusiasts will still find plenty to get excited about in the city, starting with the acclaimed Mimara Museum, named after local art collector Ante Topic Mimara. Housing the city’s most important art collection, the Mimara’s unique exhibitions include everything from ancient Egyptian glassware and Roman archaeological finds, to iconic artworks by European masters like Rembrandt, Ruisdael, Velāzquez, Goya, Rubens, Van Dyck, Manet and Caravaggio.

More prominent works are on display at the Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters, where the personal art collection of Bishop Strossmayer displays works by artists like Andrija Medulic, Veronese, Tintoretto, Fragonard and Boucher, as well as a painting of Mary Magdalene by El Greco. Other notable art collections include the exhaustive Museum of Contemporary Art, the biggest of its kind in Croatia; the Museum of Arts and Crafts, which includes an impressive assemblage of restored wooden altarpieces taken from churches around Croatia; the Miroslav Kraljevic Gallery and the Gallery of Naïve Art.
