Vukovar is known for its history, tradition, and culture. As a result, today’s Vukovar is a home for 2 modern museums – Vukovar Municipality Museum and Vučedol Culture Museum. Both museums are very attractive and offer interesting facts, data, and useful information, wrapped in a fun and amusing way.
The Vukovar Municipal Museum, located in the Baroque Palace of Eltz counts on the right bank of the Danube was founded in 1946. The permanent exhibition of the Museum is displayed over 3500 m2 which covers the ground floor, two upper floors, and the attic, and presents the historical development of the Vukovar region over the span of 8 thousand years. Over 2000 restored items from museum’s collections depict the archaeological history, the historical development of Vukovar from the first written document dating from 1220 until today, the traditional way of life in the surrounding towns and villages, the Croatian War of Independence, the time of exile and return, and life in Vukovar as a multinational community today. After the devastation in the War in 1991, the exiled museum continued its work in Mimara Museum in Zagreb. It was returned to the destroyed Eltz Palace in 1997 and continued its activities and events, becoming a place for artists and citizens returned from exile. When the artwork was returned in 2001, the museum began restoring its items and preparing for the permanent exhibition in 2014. During 2017, the permanent exhibition of The Bauer Collection was opened, as well as the Collection of donations from Croatian and European artists created as a symbol of peace and kinship.
For its work on the cultural restoration of Vukovar, revitalizing the devastated city and involving the local community in its work, the Vukovar Municipal Museum received the prestigious European Silletto award – EMYA 2016, awarded by the European Museum Forum in San Sebastian, Spain.
