This is a very nice museum. There are three floors but they do have an elevator. I'm not sure about the price because we went on a free day (the first Sunday of every month). We really enjoyed the sections on ancient Rome and ancient Greece. They had a nice mix of artifacts and stories. We didn't get to see much of the Egyptian exhibits because the museum closed earlier than we expected (13:00).
One of the best museums I’ve EVER been to. Such an extensive exhibit on Egypt, with most information in English as well. Specimens are so well kept for their age, and they are all very old! The hieroglyphics on some of the parts of the Book of the Dead are still eligible, which is very rare! So glad it closed at 1pm on Sunday, as I could have EASILY spent all my time in there! I recommend at least two hours to fully see the exhibits. They have some amazing stuff from the Bronze Age in there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Archeological Museum of Zagreb is definitely worth a visit. Along with its permanent display of artifacts found in Croatia throughout history, this is one of the few place in the world where you can see Etruscan writing! And on a shroud of an Egyptian mummy, of all things.
The museum itself holds many rare and valuable pieces. It has it's own mummy, as well. 😃 There are organized thematic expos as well. In the yard, there is a cool café. The space is really nice, with grass and prop stone artefacts like boards, pillars and other things.
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.
