Croatian museums and the pandemic


On March 19, 2020, the National Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia announced that all museums and other cultural institutions in Croatia would be closed for at least 30 days. From April 28, 2020, museums in Croatia began to reopen and remained opened since.

However, following the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases, the National Civil Protection Headquarters issued a decision to close all museum institutions in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County from April 2 until April 26, 2021.

Due to damages caused by the earthquakes on March 22 and December 29, 2020, some museums in Zagreb and museums in the Sisak-Moslavina County are closed for visitors. (April 15, 2021)
