Museum of the Đakovo Region

Muzej Đakovštine

The Museum of Đakovo and Đakovština was founded in 1951. after a two-year preparatory period which had had a happy ending due to the enthusiasm of the few individuals who had been very much aware of the need to preserve a cultural properties of Đakovo and the surrounding area.

The first museum was situated in a Seccession- building with only 208 sq. meters and a very limited number of staff. Even in such inadequate and small facilities the first permanent exhibition was organised in 1952 and the most of the musem´s collections were estabilished (archeologic, ethnographic, works of art, numismatic and historical-and cultural) The library and the above named collections are the basis of a remarkeble holding of this museum with its few thousand items.

The interior of the museum is divided into studies and show rooms, the permanent exhibition room (which has not been finished yet), a multy purpose show room, whichj is at the moment the centre of various activities (exhibitions, concerts, lectures, book promotions). The building is surrounded by a large uncultivated yard which opens new possibilities for future activities. To conclude with: After 50 years of its existence the National Museum of Đakovština has finally got appropriate facilities where it can decently present rich cultural heritage of Đakovo and Đakovština.
