An interesting open air museum in Croatia represents the Kumrovec “Staro selo Museum” (Old Village museum). The ethno-village is now traditionally decorated and provides visitors with an authentic picture of a Zagorje village from the late 19th and early 20th century. There are interesting homes that contain scenes of rural culture and traditional crafts with the help of which we can learn how our ancestors lived. Kumrovec is also the native village of Josip Broz Tito. The museum offers presentations and workshops, crafts and many events. The gallery space hosts exhibitions throughout the year. Some of them are: Od zrna do pogače (From Grains to Bread), Život mladog bračnog para (The life of a young married couple), Kovački zanati (Blacksmithing), Zagorska svadba (Zagorje wedding) and many more.
