Ozalj Regional Museum
The Ozalj Heritage Museum is located in the Old Town of Ozalj. Its structure reflects a 6,000 year history that can be tracked by means of written records and archaeological artefacts. In this museum, history begins with the Late Stone Age, the Eneolithic period, the Roman period and the migration of nations. It also covers the early Middle Ages and the story of big families with a special emphasis on the Frankopan and the Zrinski families as well as the Ozalj cultural circle. The collection of weapons from the time when the last Zrinski fought against the Turks continues with the baroque period and the period of the Brethren of the Croatian Dragon who in 1928 became the owners of the Old Town of Ozalj and who organized a special collection in the thirties, as a “museum within a museum”. And of course, a special section is dedicated to Slava Raškaj, the Ozalj painter whose watercolours represent the highest level of Croatian watercolour painting of the late 19th and early 20th century. The story told in the historical sections also includes the regional history up until the end of World War I i.e. until 1918 – the story of the Pauline order in the monastery in Svetice, construction of the hydro-power plant “Munjara” in 1908, construction of the railway in 1913, emigration to the United States, education and more.
