Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is a unique cultural institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina which has become a space for dialogue about the past and different aspects of remembrance. It serves to collect, preserve, explore, present, and promote the cultural and historical heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina. From its founding in 1945 until 1993, the Museum remained thematically focused on the history of antifascism during World War II and the cultivation of socialist state values. The Museum is one of rare cultural institutions which managed to keep safe its collections from destruction in the recent war, although it was located on the first front line. Museum material is placed and kept in depos which are constantly being enriched. Beside photo collection, archive material, 3D objects, academic library, as well as documentation centre, the Museum also holds a collection of paintings, which consists of works of artists from all regions of the former State.
