Implementation of protective measures of the National Museum of Modern Art’s material assisted by grants from the European Union Solidarity Fund

After the two devastating earthquakes that struck Zagreb on 22 March and 29 December 2020, causing considerable material damage to numerous buildings in the historic city centre, including a large number of movable cultural goods, the renovation of one of Zagreb’s most beautiful historicist buildings, the Vranyczany – Dobrinović Palace at the corner of Hebrangova Street and Zrinjevac Park, which has been the home of the National Museum of Modern Art since 1934, is finally set to begin at the end of 2022.
In order to protect more than 11,500 valuable works of art, as part of the Republic of Croatia’s cultural heritage, which are kept at the Palace, the Museum has been allocated grants from the European Union Solidarity Fund for the Implementation of Measures for the Protection of Museum Materials, and as such has started the evacuation and temporary storage of the museum’s archival and library materials, as well as works of art, inventory and equipment into a separate space where they will be kept in adequate museological conditions in accordance with the prescribed professional standards.

The total value of the project is HRK 767,400.61
