About the museum

The Zagreb City Museum was founded by the Brethren of the Croatian Dragon Society in 1907.

In the ninetieth year of its existence, 1997, the museum opened what was only its sixth permanent exhibition, for the first time in the restored premises, making use of the state of the art contemporary museum technology. The exhibition shows the past of the City of Zagreb, from prehistory, traces of which were recently uncovered under the very building of the museum itself, to the present day.

The permanent exhibition is built around the objects that the Museum possesses. We emphasized our modern approach to the creation and visualisation of the life of the city by linking the objects with the social context of their time. A combined chronological and thematic approach and the application of contemporary museographic and technological principles have enhanced the interest and accessibility of the museum for today’s visitors.
