|About the museum:
The "municipal house" in Veprinac, a mediaeval fortified town in the hinterland of Opatija, is home to an ethnographic exhibition that illustrates the everyday life and customs of the local population in the past.
On display is a corn mill, a traditional hearth, a distaff, tools used in forestry, milk pails used to carried milk to Opatija, and woven baskets for hay and other agricultural products.
There is also a copy of the Veprinac Statute of 1507, the most important historical source for Veprinac. It is a monument of Croatian law and language, and an inexhaustible source of valuable and interesting information about Veprinac. The document is preserved as a copy of the Glagolitic script from the 16th century, while the original is kept in the Archives of HAZU (the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts).
