If you are curious about the History of the city of Zagreb itself, this is the right museum to visit. Founded in 1907 by the Brethren of the Croatian Dragon Society it has been refurbished over the years to presents today an interesting and chronological route showing 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 gives a portrait of the city in all of its aspects, showing it in the light of politics, the church, history, economics and business, town-planning and architecture, the history of art and literature, entertainment, and everyday life.

Through its thematic sequence, the exhibition leads the visitor into the interesting features of the rich life of Zagreb and the mutations of its urban landscape. The building occupied by the museum was once the Convent of the Poor Clares (1650), and is itself a historical monument of great importance.

The archaeological excavations brought new information about life on Grič Hill to light, which is why the permanent exhibition actually starts from an interpretation of the archaeological finds which are presented in the very place where they were uncovered.
