Archaeological Museum In Zagreb

The Archaeological Museum in Zagreb, Croatia, was founded in 1835 to preserve Croatian heritage. It is the oldest museum in Zagreb, Croatia. The Archaeological Museum is divided into five sections: the Prehistory Collection, the Egyptian Collection, the Classical Greek and Roman Collection, the Medieval Collection, and the Numanstic Collection. It contains over 450,000 artifacts; while it exhibits foreign artifacts, most archeologists excavated most of the artifacts in Croatia. Famous artifacts include the Zagreb Mummy, Liber Linteus Zagrabiensis (the longest known Etruscan inscription), and the Vučedol dove (an ancient ceramic censer).
