The Collection of Videos was formed in the mid-1990s and is the most recent addition to the documentation holdings. It holds some 400 videos that record, for the most part, the activities of Croatian and, to a lesser extent, European museums and galleries, such as the openings of exhibitions, both temporary and permanent exhibitions, archaeological excavations, lectures, campaigns like the marking of International Museum Day, as well as stories about the founders of museums, collectors and museum professionals.

Although the recordings were, for the most part, the result of the enthusiasm of our museum professionals, some of them were produced by the museums themselves, since they try to make use of audiovisual technologies to document their work. It is interesting to note that some recordings were made as contributions by authors, directors, and cameramen.
