|About the museum:
The museum is situated in Ozalj Burg, and the material is displayed in five rooms. A history of some 6,000 years is covered by the exhibits, from archaeological artefacts to the written history of the area. The materials derive from the New Stone Age, the Aeneolithic, the Roman period, the migrations of the peoples, the early Middle Ages and recent history. This is a unique space (ethnographically, linguistically and in terms of ownership) of the medieval feud of Ozalj that belonged to the Frankopan family, and represents a whole that is bounded on three sides by the Kupa River. The history is told in historical units. Particular stress is laid on the story of the Frankopan and Zrinski family, and of the Paulist order in the monastery in Svetice. Local history is presented up to World War I, i.e., until 1918: emigration to the US, education, construction of the railway line in 1913, the Museum of the Družba Braće Hrvatskog Zmaja in Ozalj Burg itself. Another emphasis is placed on the gallery of the paintings of the artist Slava Raškaj, while another topic is the hydroelectric power station in Ozalj, which was once known as the “lightning works” of the city of Karlovac, opened in 1908.
