|About the museum:
Moslavina was founded as a local museum in 1960, with an archive and a history collection; later on in 1963 it expanded its activity to archaeology and ethnography. In 1971 a gallery section opened up in the building of the museum. The museum is housed in a late 18th century building, extended at the end of the 19th, which once belonged to the aristocratic Erdödy family and later to the Steiner family. The rich and interesting archaeological sites in the Moslavina area constitute the area in which the archaeological department of Moslavina Museum carries out its work. The archaeological collection contains various use objects from prehistory, from Antiquity and the High Middle Ages. The cultural history collection contains items and illustrative material from the first written mention of the name of Kutina, written in a document of Hungarian-Croatian King Bela IV of November 10, 1256, known as “Cotyinna”, all the way to the Homeland War and the present day. The most numerous documents related to the past of Kutina however mostly stem from the 19th and 20th centuries. Thanks to its ethnographic collection, the museum has preserved a lively image of the rich cultural and material heritage passed down by the inhabitants of the wider area of Moslavina. Many valuable items tell of the manner of life and the customs of the region in the period from the beginning of the 19th to the 20th century. Moslavina Museum is one of the most important institutions in the microregion of Moslavina. The organisation of exhibitions, lectures, research work, publication and journalism, as well as collaboration with museum and other institutions at home and abroad are all just a small part of what the museum is engaged in.
