Scale model of a Betina gajeta has won 1st prize as the best souvenir of the year

Recently held Festival of Croatian Island Products has surprised us in the most wonderful way – our scale model of the Betina gajeta has become the best souvenir in Šibenik – Knin County! Souvenir Betina gajeta scale model has been made by the original type of Betina gajeta – a firm, stable boat with a flat keel and a straight frame, made specially to meet the needs of islanders – the inhabitants of Betina and Murter village. The primary function of the gajeta was to transport all sorts of materials, including of course families and domestic animals. Everyone knew how to navigate the gajeta. The scale model is hand-made, requires a number of working hours, every tiny piece of detail tells the story. The materials…

Days of Small Wooden Shipbuilding

August is the time when our Museum is head organizer of the Days of Small Wooden Shipbuilding. The programme is dedicated to lovers of the sea and ships, maritime heritage and tradition. The intention organizing this event is to get a little closer to a wider audience and to point out the importance of preserving our maritime culture. The programme is divided into 6 days during which various lectures and workshops will be held. We’re expecting expert lecturers and presenters in various fields, interesting topics and, as an end to this event, the well – known Regatta “Za dušu i tilo” (For Body and Soul) will took place in Betina harbour. Regatta is the highlight of the summer in Betina for many reasons. We’re proud…

Summer in our Museum

A lot of happenings this summer in our museum. The street outside the museum is again full of interesting workshops, concerts, movie projections for kids… The programme is made in cooperation with other associations from our island. There’ll be a little something for everyone. Educative and creative workshops will be held for children, but we’re guessing that more interesting to them would be the cartoon projections on the big wall of the old community centre. The wall outside the museum will be a perfect spot for the projection of old photos few days before the most interesting local festivity – Brganja Day, dedicated to a shell – picking tradition of the village. The evening is pictured as a gathering with the elderly locals who would…
