HRTurizam reports that museums around the world are celebrating International Museum Day with the theme “The Future of Museums: Recovery and Rethinking.” Numerous Croatian museums joined the celebration, including the Vinkovci City Museum, which has become a pet-friendly museum as of Tuesday!

The number of pet-friendly destinations in Croatia and the world is constantly growing, especially in the tourism sector, and more and more often, many museums are opening their doors to pets. As of Tuesday, the selected society of European and world museums has been joined by the Vinkovci City Museum, which, unlike most others, visitors will be able to enter with pets during regular working hours.

“We have thus become the second museum in Croatia and the first museum that allows its visitors to visit the museum with their pets during regular working hours. The Ethnographic Museum in Zagreb is the first pet-friendly museum, but it allows you to visit with pets only on Saturdays. We have promulgated house rules, rules that must be known. We must not forget that some people are afraid of dogs, but this action intends to get rid of fear, to accept the fact that our pets are our responsibility, but also joy and pleasure,” said the director of the museum Hrvoje Vulić.

Pets marked the International Museum Day in Vinkovci. Several foster dogs were shown, children participated in the workshop “Find a paw,” several workshops on pets were held in the Gallery with the museum therapy dog Bella “Meet the museum snout,” and the organizers prepared a tour of the museum with Bella and an award for the most beautiful selfie of the day with a pet in the museum.
