March 25, 2020 – Bored at home? Watched everything on Netflix already? Take a virtual tour of Croatian museums!

The decision of the National Civil Protection Headquarters suspended all activities that were not necessary for the normal functioning of the community. Among them are numerous cultural institutions and events… and that is exactly why now is the time to take advantage of all the benefits you can find online. 

The Museum of Arts and Crafts announced that it has been temporarily closed to the public until further notice, and is moving its activities to online platforms. Unfortunately, due to the Zagreb earthquake, the Museum suffered severe damage. Fortunately, you can still take a virtual tour of it here

But the Museum of Arts and Crafts is not the only one taking advantage of all the benefits of the modern world.
