Directions to Archaeological Musem in Zagreb
The Archaeological Museum of Zagreb is housed in a beautiful building in the city center of Zagreb. Exhibits & artifacts date back to prehistoric times and include significant archaeological findings.
Today the museum collections consist of more than 450,000 varied artifacts and monuments. This magnificent collection has grown over the years as various artifacts from numerous sources were acquired as gifts or purchased by the museum itself.
The compilation of artifacts began in the 1880s when the museum began systematic archaeological excavations in numerous regions across Croatia.
This method proved successful not only in generating numerous valuable artifacts, archaeologists were also able to gain immense information about the way of life of inhabitants from the prehistoric to medieval periods.
Currently, scientists from the Archaeological Museum of Zagreb are working on excavation projects at the sites in Zumberak, Stenjevec and numerous others within continental Croatia. The consistent preservation and continued research at the sites of Andautonia and Aquae lasea are also actual.
