This week we proudly participated in the 18th annual The Best in Heritage conference, which took place from 25 to 27 September in Dubrovnik. The Best in Heritage project from the very beginning enjoys high patronage from the International Council of Museums (ICOM), and since 2009 the conference has been organized in partnership with the leading European heritage organization – Europa Nostra. The Dubrovnik Museums is a local partner of the conference, while its sponsors are the City of Dubrovnik and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.
The Betina Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding, as last year’s winner of the European Museum Forum’s Silletto Award, has been honored to present itself among other laureates and winners from various fields of protection and preservation of cultural heritage. The museum project was presented by the director Kate Šikić Čubrić.
