Zima u Betini (Winter in Betina)

In our museum, an exhibition titled “Winter in Betina” has been set up since January 26th. The exhibition is signed by the renowned artist from Betina, Slavimir Mićo Kapov. This exhibition represents a departure from his recognizable works, at least in terms of the expressive colors that can be considered his trademark. The prominent theme in all of his works is Betina, scenes, and moments from life, serving as a valuable source of inspiration and a unique way of, somehow, “freezing” time. Slavimir Mićo Kapov can be seen as an inspired documentary artist from Betina, presenting us with an image of Betina as it once was through his works. In this exhibition, the artist has captured his memories of moments from the distant winter of…

We collect hammers

Do you know Matea Šabić Sabljić? No? We’ll tell you something about her as much as we can. Well, Matea is an artist, in a word. But she’s also a researcher, a seeker of stories in art and culture, maritime activities, shipbuilding, a creator of multimedia urban installations in space… What fascinated us is that Matea, among other things, is a boat builder. You read that correctly. In her studio in Zagreb, besides engaging in visual arts, which she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, she builds boats. Real, navigable boats, or as she calls them, “utopian” boats.The idea was conceived a long time ago and is present in her personal and professional engagement, learning and exploring the maritime world. Her research,…

Great recognition for our museum: In the Top 20 Maritime Museums in Europe According to TravelMag Magazine’s Selection!

We are very happy today! This is how the British magazine TravelMag writes about our museum, which has been included in the list of the top 20 European maritime museums: “Wooden shipbuilding is a way to meet the local community. Betina, a small harbour on the Croatian island of Murter, holds this traditional craft particularly dear, and the dedicated museum offers a peek into the life of the village past and present. All items on display were donated by locals, who are also involved in the programme of events and folklore demonstrations. A 3D game is available for children to get hands-on with the craft, while first-hand accounts from shipbuilders and other townspeople are screened. Among other boat models, visitors become particularly familiar with the…

Exhibition: “Modrave on Old Maps”

This Saturday, September 23rd, at 7:30 PM, we are opening the exhibition “Modrave on Old Maps” by author Kristijan Juran.

The exhibition opening will be preceded by a lecture presenting the project, which will take place at the Presentation Center in Betina…

Exhibition opening: Shipbuilders’ Wives

In the upcoming days of the Betina shipyard, on August 14th, we will open our exhibition “Shipbuilders’ Wives”. This exhibition emphasizes the role of women in shipbuilding during the second half of the 20th century – a period of the greatest social changes in Betina on the island of Murter. The exhibition highlights the involvement of women in shipbuilding, and their stories form the foundation of the entire exhibition concept. Women have always played a secondary role in shipbuilding. Their names were never recorded. Nevertheless, a woman’s touch could always be felt at the shipyard. The stories of the women from Betina’s 20th-century shipbuilding community reveal the other side of shipbuilding – the one hidden behind launched ships, bent timbers, and hammered nails. These stories…
