Unbelievable is the only way for me to describe this style of painting. Its hard to believe that the paintings are painted in reverse on glass. They are beautiful when you see them from the front and wonder who thought of this type of painting....More

Very pretty museum showcasing Ivan Generalic and Nàikifor. It is a fast walk from the funicular (go straight and the museum is on your left).

The paintings on show are really lovely and are well curated. The reception desk staff was friendly and helpful too. 4/5 because I would’ve liked more information on the paintings/context, and other staff were wandering around chatting in what is quite a small space.

This is a gorgeous little museum, attended to by young, extremely knowledgable docents that are art history majors and masters candidates (Zagreb has a prestigious art history college.). The colors, methods and ideas expressed in these paintings are phenomenal.

The artists are self taught and have produced beautiful mostly oil on glass paintings. The museum is small but is definitely worth spending an hour or less .

Some nice pieces, some tacky tourist pieces but overall we believed it to be expensive. Staff were helpful though.

You will be amazed by the beautiful original naive art of Ivan Generalic and others. The oil on glass is an art of its own and spectacular.

Only go if you love art. Very small on one floor. About 6 rooms. When I went there were just 2 other people. Very quiet. Small entrance fee. Nicely laid out. Peaceful to appreciate the art. Staff friendly. Took me 20 minutes at a leisurely...More
