Traditional folk costumes of the island

Yesterday we’ve held a workshop about traditional folk costumes of the island for children in the Museum. First our curator had the introduction lecture and afterwards the kids draw what they’ve learned about the subject. The point was to raise the awareness about the cultural heritage of the island, the process of making the folk costumes and the occasions where they were worn.

The making of Betina gajeta scale model

The main goal of this workshop is to initiate interest in modelling, handcraft and shipbuilding.

Read to me!

We have joined the national campaign “Read to me” so we’ve read several stories to the kids in the Museum this morning. They told us they love reading very much and their parents read stories to them too. For the occasion we borrowed some children’s stories from the library and decorated the Museum a little bit. The children told us they loved the stories we’ve chosen for them ❤️, it was very illustrative, and they would definitely come for a visit again! They took a look arround the Museum afterwards as well!

Night of Museums 2017

There were 14 different items collected and described by their name, type, year of origin and the owner. People really liked the exhibition, some of them were quite emotional about it since it brought back happy memories. Just after the opening we’ve had a bus full of visitors from Dubrovnik who came to see the Museum’s collection with the guidance of our curator. They really…
