The Zagreb Archaeological Museum was established in 1836. It is the oldest museum in Zagreb and is famous in Croatia for its colorful archaeological collections. The collection amounts to 450,000 items, telling the history of Croatia from ancient times to the present.
The Museum of Croatian Archaeological Sites is the oldest museum in Croatia. The standard established is to study the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the Croats in the Middle East. The museum entered its heyday from the 7th to the 15th century, especially from the time of the early medieval Croatian country (from the 9th to the 12th century). The museum was named in 1893. During World War II, due to fear of the threat of war, it was originally moved to Sinj, and then eventually reached Split via Klis. Since 1976, its archaeological treasures have been maintained and exhibited monumental and Representative building.
