Ethnographic Museum in Croatia, Zagreb resort

Rating: 7,5/10 (100 votes)

The Ethnographic Museum was founded in 1919. It is located on Mazhuranich Square. The building that houses the museum was built in 1902 in the art deco style. The facade of the building is decorated with a dome with frescoes and sculptures by Rudolf Waldets.  

The museum has a large collection of 80,000 exhibits, but not all of them are on display, as the building would not have enough space. Ethnographic collections of different countries are kept here: Japan, South America, Australia, Africa and, of course, Croatia and nearby states. Many exhibits were donated to the museum by Croatian travelers and researchers such as brothers Stevo Seljan and Mirko, Dragutin Lerman.      

The museum displays folk costumes, ceramics and jewelry, handicrafts, kitchen utensils, musical instruments, weapons and many other items.

The archives of the Ethnographic Museum contain ancient drawings and photographs. There is also a library with more than 11,000 books and a restoration workshop that successfully copes with the complex procedure of restoring museum exhibits.
