EMA Awards Ceremony, Skopje

During the weekend on the 28th September till the 01st October we visited Skopje in Macedonia for the annual EMA Awards Ceremony. We were so proud to be there among all other beautiful museums from all over Europe. It was a great achievement to find ourselves as one of the 10 best museums among all who applied for the award. This is what the judges said about our Museum:

Croatia has provided the MUSEUM OF WOODEN SHIPBUILDING at Betina, a small historic village of about 800 inhabitants on the island of Murter, where the main activities are fishing, agriculture, craftsmanship and tourism. The museum was officially opened in 2015 and is in
a building of cultural, historical and architectural importance. It has close ties with the local environment and with the wider region of Dalmatia. The permanent exhibition illustrates the history and use of the traditional wooden boat in Betina and the history of local shipbuilding from the 1740s to the present day. Many types of boat were built here, from the four-metre long
kaić to cargo ships of 27 metres. Exhibits include shipbuilding tools, marine equipment, agricultural tools, fishing gear, traditional clothing and household goods, scale models and archive photographs and documents. Wooden boats can be seen in their own place in the harbour, ranked according to their condition and use: most are now used for leisure and tourist activities, including regattas, entertainment events and traditional weddings. The museum is an initiator of a new way of the use of tangible and non-tangible heritage in contemporary life. It is an example of an outstanding inter-generational co-operation. Educational activities for young people, new shipbuilding and presentations at the annual regatta continue to attract visitors.” 

Thanks EMA!
