It has served as the town museum since 1925 and was the first museum from Croatia to be nominated as the European Museum of the Year in 1994.
The entomological collection held in Varazdin is equally stunning. You’ll find it at the beautiful Herzer Palace that is right in the center of the city.

Nearly 50,000 specimens are part of the permanent collection.
