Museum mission

To meet the overall cultural needs of the local community, primarily from the city of Labin, but also from the surrounding municipalities of Kršan, Pićan, Raša and Sveta Nedelja.
The Labin Museum endeavours to:
-      provide an interesting educational and cultural centre, particularly for schoolchildren
-      to promote the improved mining exhibition as a unique cultural attraction in Croatia (according to Lonely Planet, the best known world publisher of tourist guides, in 2005 Labin Museum was among the Top 10 uncommon Croatian attractions, referred to as the most original museum)
-      to accomplish a contemporary museum display with interpretations in Croatian, Italian, English and German, in accordance to the needs of the visitors
-      to create a coherent story that flows in continuity from the ground floor to the second storey with its sequencing of chronological review and seven thematic units
-      to base the story of the display on the following considerations: linking the past and present; the social, cultural and political history of Labin and its region; on the character of the city, the creativity of its people, their centuries-old aspiration for freedom and independence; a depiction of the achievements of leading personalities in the Labin milieu; the coexistence of the various ethnic groups, the multicultural nature of the milieu and, in particular, the good relations between the Croatian and the Italian populations; the presentation of the economic resources of today and yesterday
