Croatian School Museum

Since its institution in 1871, The Croatian Pedagogic-Literary Society systematically collected material for the future museum. From the year 1889 the collections have been housed in then newly constructed building of the Croatian Teachers Home. The opening ceremony for the Croatian School Museum happened on the August 19th 1901.

The primary task of our institution is to systematically collect, study and exhibit past and present in the Croatian educational and pedagogical fields. 

The Museum holds collections of teaching aids, teaching materials and school equipment, students' and teachers' writings, textbooks and handbooks, school regulations, an archival collection of documents, a collection of photographs and a record file on schools. The Davorin Trstenjak Pedagogical library as an integral part of the Museum. 

The Croatian School Museum opened its permanent exhibition on Teachers' day, October 5th 2000. Approximately 1000 items, mostly original, from the second half of the 19th, and the first half of the 20th century are on display within 450m2.
