first_imgThe newly opened exhibition complements the Museum’s permanent exhibition, and its in situ placement, by placing objects in their original context, greatly facilitates the interpretation of Betina’s gajeta, leuta, pasara and other ships in the harbor. Significant awards that the museum has won in its four years of work, of which the last one, this year’s “European Heritage Award“For achievements in the field of education, training and awareness raising will remain permanently recorded as a positive example of museum practice. Emphasizing satisfaction with the efforts and efforts invested in preserving and promoting the art of construction as an intangible cultural heritage, Minister of Culture Nina Obuljen Koržinek said that shipbuilders, caulkers, who selflessly pass on their knowledge and skills to all younger generations are equally responsible for all successes. The Minister pointed out as the most valuable intangible good the strong connection of the local community with shipbuilders and shipowners, which is confirmed by the very name of this communication between the port and the Museum, which is called “Shipbuilder’s Trail”. The museum preserves the knowledge of traditional wooden shipbuilding, which is an indispensable part of Croatian maritime heritage, and thus an important part of European maritime cultural heritage. The Betina Wooden Shipbuilding Museum is hosting this year’s 25th forum, which was joined by members of the European Maritime Heritage Organization (EMH).center_img The opening of the museum took place within the International Forum of Maritime Heritage of the Mediterranean, organized by the Association of Mediterranean Maritime Museums (AMMM).
