Museum Mimara information
Lonely Planet review
This is the diverse private art collection – Zagreb’s best – of Ante Topić Mimara, who donated over 3750 priceless objects to his native Zagreb, even though he spent much of his life in Salzburg, Austria.
Housed in a neo-Renaissance former school building (1883), the collection spans a wide range of periods and regions. There is an archaeological section with 200 items; exhibits of ancient Far Eastern artworks; a glass, textile and furniture collection that spans centuries; and 1000 European art objects.
In the painting collection, check out works by Raphael, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Bosch, Velázquez, Goya, Manet, Renoir and Degas.
