Everything about Croatian museums in one place

Everything about Croatian museums in one place
«A guide through Croatian museums and collections» was introduced recently in Zagreb and is the first complete guide through Croatian museums, which holds information about around 300 museums, exhibitions and collections, with around seven million objects.

In the guide, which is the product of 16 years of work, is the summary of 200 years of museum art in Croatia. A publication of the guide in English is expected by the end of this year. A similar guide was published 20 years ago, and the new edition has been widened by around 70 new museums, collections and permanent exhibitions, as well as private museums and museum collections that came about during this 20 year period.

The new guide is a richly illustrated publication, which through short descriptions, on around 600 pages, shows the construction of 265 museums, collections, permanent exhibits and sacral collections. It equally presents collections of larger museums that have a high cultural and historical value, as well as smaller collections and exhibition spaces, that came about through the hard work of local communities and individuals.
Every museum is introduced in a written text, with descriptions of their valuable and specific exhibits.

In the guide, the museums are divided by geographical regions shown on maps, inside of which the museums are grouped by parishes and village and town names.

The guide is to serve as a manual which offers visitors not only information about collections but also useful information such as addresses, working hours, contact numbers, websites, fees, info about how to reach the museum, parking possibilities, expert guidance, disabled persons access and other information about the offer of the museum.

The edition published by the Museum documentation centre containd more than 600 photographs of museum architecture, exhibits and individual objects.
