|About the museum:
The museum in Knin started working in 1969, then known as the Local Museum of the Knin Region. By a decision of the city council of November 19, 1997, it obtained its current title. The museum is housed in the fortress of Knin. Its museum activity covers collection, preserving and study of natural, cultural and civilisation-related properties and their expert and scholarly study and systemisation into collections; the permanent protection of the museum material, documentation, museum sites and finds; their immediate and indirect presentation to the public via permanent and occasional exhibitions, and the publication of data and knowledge about the museum material and the museum documentation in specialised, scholarly and other media. The basic activity of the museum is realised via these activities, and it covers the material that comprises objects and other materials from the area of archaeology, ethnology, cultural history, history, the fine arts and natural history. In its work the museum also conducts additional activities – it carries out scholarly research into the area of its activity, it advances scholarly work for the sake of settling archaeological, ethnological, cultural-history, historical, artistic and natural sciences problems; it presents its material and the results of its research in specialised and scholarly publications and so on; it sells postcards, souvenirs, prospectuses, guides and publications about the objects or monuments that derive from the field of activity of the museum or are actually present within it. Knin Museum also manages the Knin historical unit of the Fort, Podgrađe [literally, suburb], and the unexplored archaeological zone of Spas Hill.
