|About the museum:
Ogulin Local History Museum was opened in 1967. It is housed in the converted rooms of the castle of the Frankopans that was built at the end of the 15th century. The museum works as part of the adult education institute of Ogulin; its brief is to collect, study, present and publicise historical, cultural and artistic material and documents from Ogulin town and from the environs. The holdings of the museum contain about 1,500 items of an archaeological, historical, ethnographic and artistic nature from the region of Ogulin. A special collection in the museum is the mountaineering display with material about hiking and mountaineering in Croatia. The collection was officially opened in 1984 on the occasion of the 110th anniversary celebrations of the Croatian Hiking Association. The collection contains original objects of Croatia’s most prominent mountaineers, and diverse documentation about this activity. Unique in Croatia and this part of Europe, the collection is continuing to develop and is added to by the valuable achievements of Croatian climbers. The museum possesses a library, which is open to users from outside.
