Croatian History Museum presents the Croatian cultural and historical heritage. A collection which dates back to the Middle Ages. Croatia is rich in history, but the museums lack of space limits the exhibitions.
TIP: IN SPITE OF BEING SMALL THE QUALITY OF THE EXHIBITIONS ARE WONDERFULL. THEY HAVE A LOT TO SHOW, BUT NOWHERE TO DISPLAY IT.
Croatian History Museum has a collection of nearly 300,000 museum artefacts. The collection of Croatian cultural and historical heritage from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Unfortunately, the museum is very small. As a result, they do not have a permanent display.
The Museum is expected to move to a former Zagreb Tobacco Factory. Once they move, they will finally get to fully present Croatian rich cultural and historical heritage.
At the moment only temporary exhibitions are open to the public. They are exhibited at the Museum’s 118th-century Baroque palace, called Vojković-Oršić-Rauch.
