"MAC" Top 5 Page for this destination Museum of Arts and Crafts - MUO Tip by polardabar

The Museum of Arts and Crafts is situated right across the National Theater & it's celebrating its 125th anniversary. The Hidden Treasure exhibition represents everything that's been going on in the Museum from its foundation up to today, especially focusing on those unseen items, those who haven't even left the museum storage rooms The exhibits cover everything from paperclips to evening dresses, from the famous Cul de Paris to Alvar Aalto's famous chairs.

Unfortunately, this exhibition is orientated towards local population, so there's nothing written in English [which I find absurd in the 21st century]. However, there are guides who can show you around & another option of calling a machine that tells you an item's story. I went there with a group & we had a really good guide who introduced us some very interesting details...

The exhibition contains some amazing black & white photos, commercials from the advertisement beginnings, the world-wide-known Pag & Lepoglava laces, jewelry, furniture, glass, paintings, graphics, altar statues, cutlery, books, clocks, dishes, souvenirs etc.

The museums permanent exhibition provides a survey of the history of the art styles, forms & techniques that reflect Croatia's economic & cultural life & its background in art production.
