The Archaeological Museum (Croatian: Arheološki muzej u Zagrebu) in Zagreb, Croatia is an archaeological museum with over 450,000 varied artifacts and monuments, gathered from various sources but mostly from Croatia and in particular from the surroundings of Zagreb.
Its predecessor institution was the "National Museum" (German: Kroatisches Nationalmuseum Agram) in the Austrian Empire, open to the public since 1846. It was renamed to "State Institute of Croatia, Slavonia, and Dalmatia" in 1866. In 1878, the Archaeological Department became an independent institution within the State Institute, and the umbrella institute was dissolved in 1939, leaving the Archaeological Museum as a standalone institution. The archaeological collection of the State Institute had been kept in the Academy mansion at Zrinski Square from the 1880s and remained there until 1945, when the museum moved to its current location at the 19th-century Vranyczany-Hafner mansion, 19 Zrinski Square.

This place was great. It wasn't crowded at all and was pretty quiet. The museum isn't huge and could probably be seem in about 2 hours. I was running late on my last day of sight seeing so only had an hour. Everything was nicely displayed and well organized. Most of the signs were in Croatian but newer ones were written in English. If I had to guess, more and more signs will be in English as they update things. The highlight for me was the Etruscan scroll. Very cool and one of a kind.

Very informative through the ages. Egyptian part is the best. Note not all info is in English but there is printed docs

Quite an impressive collection of pre-historic, Egyptian, and Roman exhibits (complete with an actual living mummy - well, not living, but real). The item description place could use improvement, and though most have an English version, not all of them do. The descriptions lack the explanation and stories that make the artifacts interesting. Try to arrange for a tour of the museum a head of time so you don't miss on the importance and interesting details that are easily missed otherwise.

Nice place, rather noisy, cosy and eventful. There are trees, so nice shade and smell during spring/summer time. (Saturdays are crowded with people with little kids due to place for play.)
