This museum was established back in 1877 as the museum of the Free royal city of Osijek. In the beginning (so the first decade or so) they built up their exhibit out of donations. It became a national museum in 1994.
The Museum of Slavonia consists of two buildings, you can find them in the Old Town (Tvrđa), on the square. One building is located next to the School of Economics, the other building is next to the School of Musical arts.
The museum itself is pretty interesting, it has a lot of things from the Roman era on display. It consists of old coins, tombstones, everyday items. It basically depicts the life of that time. They also have many other interesting things, but unfortunately they aren’t part of the permanent exhibition. A couple of years ago they had an amazing exhibition with lots of Ottoman treasures, art, clothing items. It was a real pleasure to be there and experience it all firsthand!
The tickets are really cheap, you definitely don’t have to worry about overspending here! They also have a souvenir shop, so if you wanna buy something to remember this experience by, you should visit them!
The Museum of Slavonia is a must-visit place if you’re in Osijek. It has a lot to say about the life of people from these parts, from the Roman era. Wouldn’t it be fun to learn a bit more about the history of the place you’re visiting?
