The establishment of the Forestry Museum in Krasno in 2005, the first of the kind in Croatia, filled a large void in museum presentation of the forestry profession. This event was shortly followed by the opening of the Forestry Museum in Bošnjaci in 2007. These two museums cater for three important segments of our forestry; high selection forests and littoral karst (Krasno) and lowland regular forests (Bošnjaci). Their foundation marked a big step towards more progressive museum presentation of our forestry and wider popularization of our profession. Visitors to the Forestry Museum in Krasno are given the opportunity to gain insights into forestry through past periods. Still, the activity of the Museum needs to be complemented with detailed research into the history of forestry by means of organizing professional gatherings, collecting new exhibits and documentation, introducing up-to-date presentation techniques and possibly enlarging the museum.
However, such “regional“ forestry museums can in no way replace one central forestry museum in Zagreb. One such museum used to be housed in the Forestry Home in Zagreb from 1898 to the end of World War II. The non-existence of a central museum which would present the entire forestry of our country is a big handicap for our profession. This is the reason that its reopening in the former premises in Zagreb takes priority. Furthermore, it is a debt of the current generation of foresters towards our forerunners, but also towards the entire forestry profession.
We have selected some of the most important data from the meticulously described holdings and principal exhibits in the Forestry Museum in Krasno. The museum in situated on the ground floor of an old but renovated building of Krasno Forest Office. It contains four rooms and a corridor with a sanitary block in the area of 131 m2. Together with a smaller, detached porch of 34 m2, the overall area amounts to 165 m2. A total of 357 exhibits have been collected, of which 162 relate to different written documentation (pictures, maps, studies, ledgers, specialized books, brochures and others) and 195 exhibits show a variety of work equipment (instruments, tools, appliances and products). The library contains 556 items in all (326 books and 230 brochures). Satisfaction with the work of the Krasno Forestry Museum to date and a keen interest shown by the wider public commit us to invest further effort into enlarging its contents and following the presented recommendations.
