The tobacco facility in Metković is one of the outstanding examples of the industrial heritage in this area. Built in the early 20th century it was systematically enlarged and modernized after World War Two. As it fell into disuse in the late 1990s, preventive measures were taken to protect it. However, it was only partially saved from devastation. In the early 21st century, its administrative office building was converted into the Natural History Museum and the City Library. A splendid edifice thus anticipated the urbanization of Metković in the 20th century while its recent conversion initiated the city’s revitalization for the 21st century.
