We came across this museum by accident and it was worth going in. It was a very striking building. There was a fabulous exhibition about 2 brothers who were explorers. They even worked for the king of Ethiopia. Very well presented.

This was the third ethnography museum I visited on this trip (one in Slovenia, the other in Dubrovnik). This one was excellent. Great descriptions (in English) of the different costumes -- really amazing things, all beautifully displayed. Make certain that you stop at the museum...More

It is an interesting museum, however stuff is a bit random and not well described. The local costumes/textiles are very well displayed. There is also a great exhibit on bikers and their dogs which I thought was absolutely great.

This is a very nice museum keeping the feel of the old and showing you how people lived in the past. Go visit while in Zagreb and you might be surprised.

Go straight upstairs, don't bother with the general exhibition of collected goodies from around the world. The folk costumes upstairs are wonderful. so many, so different, so intricate. Just lovely if your a folk / nation costume fan. Downstairs near the gift shop there was...More

This is a small museum, but offers some unique insight to local culture! There is an extensive collection of traditional folk clothing, and a really interesting photo exhibition documenting rural Croatian people and their connections to their homeland. The information about local legends and beliefs...More
