This museum traces the centuries from prehistoric times up to the Tartar invasion of Europe in 1242. Pride of place here goes to the “Zagreb Mummy,” wrapped in bandages which are covered in a curious text written in Etruscan script. It was purchased as a souvenir in Egypt in the 19th century and is believed to date from 250 B.C. There’s also a collection of funerary items, including the Vučedol Dove, a three-legged ceramic vessel in the form of a bird which was found in Vukovar in eastern Croatia and dates back to the fourth millennium B.C.
