This collection is advertised as a museum of old masters. However, the vast majority of the works are "follower of", "workshop of", or "attributed to" type of paintings. Many of them could use cleaning or restauration, and only a handful are really worthwhile. When in...More

This is a fascinating collection. Very much a reflection of one man's taste. Pictures are well presented. Some are in need of serious cleaning and conservation. Quality is excellent. Needs more visitors. Overlooked asset of Zagreb. Mostly early Italian religious but some good later Dutch...More

Not a lot to excite in here. Couple of lesser Breugel paintings and a pukka Teniers. Lot of 'school of' stuff and even the one work by Patinir rather questionable. Paintings could do with a good clean. Bit cheeky asking for an entrance fee (30k)...More

The building is not very attractive. Inside, a nice collection from the 14th to the 19th century. Lots of Flemish School masters. But also Fra Angelico, Carpeaux, Courbet, Corot,... Well worth spending an hour.

If you are interested in the Old Masters, this is the best place to view them in Zagreb. Some very high quality paintings, much better then the Mimara Museum. This gallery is in the Academy of Arts and Sciences building.

This museum exhibiting the collection donated to the city by Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer in 1884. The Gallery exhibits most religious works of European painters from 14th-19th century, which correspond with the fact the Strossmayer was a bishop. Here are also some works by Croatian...More

This is a collection of beautiful pieces from the 12th century to the 19th century, including some old masters. The early religious work is exquisite. It is well organized and covers one floor and can be viewed in an hour and a half or so.
