Occupying the 17th-century Convent of the Clares, the City Museum traces Zagreb's history from prehistoric times until today. Themed sections include recent Iron Age finds, walk-through reconstructions of 19th-century Ilica shops and study rooms of Croatian artists. One the most riveting sections is the room-sized floor map of Zagreb's 19th-century Lower Town, complete with scale models of its main buildings mounted on pedestals. Here you can retrace your steps that day or plan your evening out. Other captivating nuggets include old packaging, watches and automatic music machines. Propaganda posters of 20th-century political and religious figures act as a finale. Many exhibits are interactive and it's all well documented in English.
