FAQ's regarding Virtual Tours
Are the tours live or will I be watching a video?
The tours are done live - not pre-recorded*. This allows our guests to have real-time interaction with the Tour Guide and to even ask questions at given moments on the tour. As they are live, you'll have a more enjoyable experience viewing the tour from a device which will allow you to interact (chat, voice and/or video camera).
*Tours are NOT broadcast live from the museum or location mentioned.
What is the best way to view / take the tour?
Zoom is the platform that is used for these virtual tours. This application is free and available on many different devices. However, the best possible experience will be had on a laptop, desktop computer, or a tablet with ample viewing room. You can watch from a TV, but that would prevent you from interacting as the tours are live.
How many can take the tour at once?
Our reservation system is designed to control the number of reservations that can be made. Up to 95 devices may be connected for a single tour. Up to 8 persons may view via your device, permitted local COVID-19 regulations allow it.
After I reserve a tour, what can I expect?
After you reserve your tour, you will get an email from the website as a confirmation (if you do not see this, please check your spam or junk folder). You will not receive anything thereafter until a day or so before the tour date.
When you get the email with your Zoom meeting link, you will need to click on the provided link to open the tour in Zoom. While it's true that it is possible to have more devices connected at a time, a single tour guide will only be able to give meaningful attention to 95.
When should I check-in for my tour?
It is suggested that you join the Zoom meeting 10 or more minutes before it is scheduled to start. This ensures that there are no connection problems, that your name is properly displayed, and that any other additional technical issues are resolved before the tour.
What items should I have on hand?
- Your Bible (optional)
- Note-taking materials (optional)
Recording the tour is prohibited.
What if I want a tour for my congregation / family / group?
If you want a private tour or a group tour using several devices please contact us! We'll be happy to set up a tour time just for you.
Moving standing reservations from one tour to another is NOT permitted. That is to say, from "The Wheat and the Weeds" to "Your Word Is Truth". If your circumstances require that you move your reservation to another date for the same tour, MBT will be happy to help.
Virtual tours purchased are non-refundable. You can, however, reschedule for the same tour if your circumstances require you to do so.

About the tour: Statuettes and images of mother-goddesses have been unearthed by archaeologists at ancient sites all over Europe. For thousands of years, mother-goddess worship was a powerful rival to the pure worship of Jehovah. Why does mother-goddess worship in ancient times appear to have been a very early form of false religion? Where did this idea originate? Where and when did the idea develop that Mary was the “mother of God”? What does the Bible really say about Mary, the mother of Jesus? What can Mary’s example teach us?
About the museums: Located in the very heart of the city, the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb is a museum with over 450,000 varied artifacts and monuments - gathered from various sources - but mostly from Croatia. The museum was founded in 1846. The Mimara Museum is one of the world's largest private art collections. It is located in the architectural complex built in the late 19th century. The artworks span an amazing three millennia of history - sculptures and archaeological rarities which date back to ancient Greece and Egypt, the glass collection showcases works from ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire and European art from the early Middle Ages to the 20th century.
