12 Unique Things to Do in Split – The Homeland War Museum

is a specialised historical museum that explores the Homeland War, an event of historical importance for the Republic of Croatia. The war was fought from 1991 to 1995 after Croatia had declared independence from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Serb-controlled Yugoslav People’s Army. The museum collections include military equipment, weapons, uniforms, photographs, video material, library and archives of personal and official documents from the period of the war. The museum is currently located in an old bomb shelter and its main goal is to collect, process and preserve the artefacts as the project for a new modern museum building is being prepared.
