The former family house and studio of Ivan Meštrovic, sculptor, painter, architect and writer.

Ivan Meštrovic (1883-1962) was one of the most prominent Croatian artists of the first half of the twentieth century. Now an art museum with a permanent display of his work, the Atelijer Meštrovic was originally his family home and studio.

Adapted from the complex Meštrovic bought and expanded at the beginning of the 1920s, the Atelijer museum is situated in the historical centre of Zagreb, the Upper Town, and includes an atrium, studio, family rooms and garden. The Atelijer is part of a series of properties the artist donated to the Croatian people in 1952: along with the studio in Zagreb, the Muzeji Ivana Meštrovica also manage the family villa in Split and the family mausoleum in Otavice, where Meštrovic grew up.
