©80s Museum

Zagreb’s newest museum recreates an entire '80s apartment and shows us how the city looked back in the days of Yugoslavia. This time warp will have you scratching your head over at brick-like phones and lurid orange hairdryers could ever have looked modern - at least the red Tomos moped retains some of its cultural cool. Billed as an interactive museum, you needn’t worry about picking things up and having a root around, or getting into the yellow ‘micro car’ for a photo op.

 

Things to look out for include the Commodore 64, the world's first popular home computer released in 1982, a bulky 18-inch black and white television, and old issues of Erotika magazine (ahem) stashed away in the museum. The nuclear ‘educational materials’ left around the apartment, written so that civilians would be prepared for a worst-case scenario, are particularly chilling, and remind us that the 80s weren't all silly outfits and catchy tunes.
