Overview

The Croatian Museum of Tourism was established in 2007 and its headquarters were purposefully located in Opatija - the city where Croatian tourism was born and whose growth was completely intertwined with tourism. This unique museum collects, investigates and displays objects and stories that bear witness to the rich history of tourism in Croatia, but it also raises the question of how tourism today affects all of us - how our cities are changing, as well as how we change by traveling and welcoming travelers. The museum has three locations in the center of Opatija - villa Angiolina and Swiss House in the Angiolina Park and Juraj Sporer Art Pavilion in St. Jacob’s Park.

Good to find out more about the background to the town and it's origins as a spa/wellness retreat. Small but fascinating none the less

Supposedly this is were tourism started with a private villa of a very social host. There are some photos and some paintings, but the house and the park are the main attraction.

We are not museum people, but this cute little stop is worth a quick look. Gives a nice little overview of the history of the region, with some nice artifacts and photos of the region.

Very interesting. However, Opatija needs to advertise this and it's sister museum in the Villa Angiolina much better! Very few signs about and no brochure or flier in hotel. We found by chance and thought it was closed as no signage and door very stiff....More
