RED HISTORY MUSEUM

 

25 years after the end of the Homeland War, the Croatian public is still deeply divided by its socialist history, a division sharpened by the traumas of war and afterward succumbed to by the lack of sensible discussion. The absence of national consensus about our past meant there was no specialized museum (state or private) in Croatia that dealt with the complete history of socialism in the country and the topic itself was considered better forgotten than resolved - until the opening of the Red History Museum.

All the changes that took place during the socialist rule influenced the development of today's Croatian society, which is why the aim is to encourage dialogue, further exploration and learning about the history of socialism so that we can bridge the division of the past and responsibly move forward.

The community is involved in the exhibit development for greater social impact, and the local team behind the museum focuses on enriching the Dubrovnik outside the Old town. With the museum itself transforming the only remaining socialist factory in Dubrovnik, other projects are also being developed as innovative urban interventions in culturally impoverished areas of the city.
