Regional Museum in Travnik

Regional Museum in Travnik was founded in 1950. in Travnik. The rich heritage of the museum, inherited from Travnik’s gymnasium and increased by new findings and collected material conditioned the inclusion of Regional Museum in the most important institution of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition to aforementioned gymnasium’s collections, new collections eventually formed: photo collection with 4000 photographs, collection of documents from the recent history, and fund of paintings, in which the most valuable and significant is the collection of paintings and drawings of Muhammad Kulenovic, Krakov’s student and pre-war revolutionary who was creating art in Travnik in recent years.


Museum of Alija Izetbegovic

In the most difficult years for this country, during the period from the breakup of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia until the late nineties, a man who became a symbol of the struggle for freedom and the idea of Bosnia and Herzegovina as a multiethnic and civil state arose. That man was Alija Izetbegovic.
Devoting his entire life to justice and human rights, in the hardest times, Alija Izetbegovic became the representative of legitimate aspirations of all oppresed, symbol of the noble struggle and endless love for his Bosnia and Herzegovina, the country of all those who love, value and accept it as their country.
Museum of Alija Izetbegovic was opened exactly four years after the president passed away, on October 19th, 2007. In old city fortress, more specifically in Vratnik kapi-towers of Ploca and Sirokac, thanks to enthusiasts and admirers of the life and works of Alija Izetbegovic, another monument was born that, along with Sehidsko (Martyrs’) cemetary "Kovaci" tells the Bosnian story about life and death and battle between good and evil.


The National Museum

National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo is the oldest museum institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina, founded in 1888., during the Austro-Hungarian rule. Initially the museum was housed in inadequate premises, but then, by the regulatory plan from 1909., they made sketch of the museum and planned its construction in the central part of the city of Sarajevo, on today's Trg Bosne i Hercegovine (Square of Bosnia and Herzegovina). Architect Charles Parzik did a project for museum building, which consists of four separate pavilions, interconnected by terraces, with an inner atrium where a botanical garden lies. The building was made in Neo-Renaissance style. It is interesting that this is the only museum building in southeastern Europe, which was built specifically for this purpose.
The National Museum in Sarajevo during its nearly hundred-years old existence managed to collect much of the national cultural heritage of the country and all its peoples. The exhibits are grouped in classes (archaeological, ethnological, and the Department of Natural Sciences) in several different collections (folk, numismatic, natural history, prehistoric, ancient, and others), and the most important museum exhibit is renowned Sarajevo’s Haggadah, traditional Jewish book, which was brought to Sarajevo by the Sephardim after their expulsion from Spain.


Sharia Law School

Sharia Judicial School building was built in 1887. by project of Karl Parzik in rich pseudo-Moorish decorative manner with elements and details gathered from various regional schools of Islamic art. Sharia Judiciary School (maktab-nuvab) was opened on April 06, 1889., as five-year high school. Here is important true observation that the concept of organization of the Ottoman-Turkish madrasas is based on the principle of the inner courtyard, which comes from the Hellenistic architecture. This rule applies not only to the monumental buildings, but to the modest ones as well. Sharia Judiciary School closed in April 1937. Namely, according to some, the reason for terminating this school is the fact that it became the Higher Islamic Sharia-Theological School (popularly known as VIST, and its graduates as "vistovci"). After World War II the Museum of Sarajevo was located in this building, and after the last war, the building housed the Faculty of Islamic Studies.


Historical Museum

Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the only museum that treats the entire history of Bosnia and Herzegovina since its first mention in historical sources (949, Constantine Porphyrogenitus) to the modern and independent Bosnia and Herzegovina.
During all the years of existence and work, the museum organized 165 museum exhibitions and three permanent museum settings. Currently the museum has two permanent settings, Surrounded Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina Through the Centuries.
About 400,000 museum objects are collected and preserved in the museum and presented to the public by permanent and temporary exhibitions. All the museum stuff is accessible to the public, professional and scientific workers from the country and abroad.
Museum of Literature and Theater Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina
It was founded in 1961. as a museum of literature. A decade later its activities expanded and it became a Theatrical Museum. In 1992., the museum’s showroom or gallery "Mak" is opened.
