A story about Oldtimer Car Museum in Skradin

Dear all,
we present to you the Museum of Historical Vehicles and Industrial Heritage Scardona Park in Skradin, a popular Oldtimer Museum.

This unique museum of technical culture in Dalmatia was prepared and equipped for months to finally open its doors to the first visitors on July 1, 2018.

The Museum of Historical Vehicles and Industrial Heritage is significant for Croatia as well as for Dalmatia and Skradin.
Besides exhibiting old-fashioned cars, motorbikes, bicycles, photographs, artifacts and memorabilia,it also organizes many thematic exhibitions, lectures and forums, movie projections , technical workshops and restorations, and other events related to the introduction, learning and promotion of 120 years of motor culture in Croatia. Apart from the introduction of the motorcycle launches in our area (18/19 century), the exhibition continues conceptually to the part we called "Behind the Iron Curtain", which carries the world of cars and motorcycles from the period until the late 80s of the last century.

- The cultural identity of Croatia at the beginning of the last century presented through our exhibition, represents a tourist attraction and generates new content in cultural tourism. It gives a completely new look on Skradin and Šibenik, Dalmatia and Croatia, that have from the very beginnings of motorization been part of a developed European society and of all the social flows that emerged from the new order, such as: The first car in Split in 1907, Adriatic highway in 1929.

- The ultimate goal of the Museum is to completely revitalize the scarcely known part of our national history, and give an insight into the first pioneering period of the beginnings of motoring in this area; to show in the new light the most important events and people responsible for the transformation of the society from idle into motion, from macadamas to asphalt, and horse riders into a new motorized era. The Scardona Park Museum has given a special place to car show in these areas where East and West have always been encountered, and also through the vehicles of former Eastern European and Western manufacturers and brands.

- In this way, our visitors can return for a while at the age of our grandfathers, grandmothers, parents, but also of our childhood. In addition, the exhibition presents the so-called „Retro living room“ with typical furnishings and technical appliances of that era.

For our youngest visitors, we have also organized a children's playroom where children can play with retro and eco-friendly toys, and their parents or grandparents engaging with the first electronic toys or simply relaxing with the music of some other time.

- Over time, the museum became the center of gathering and socializing of Croatian oldtimer clubs. It also has a special emphasis on out-of-school education, ie the arrival of primary and secondary school students, kindergarten children and students who through the technical education workshops and playwrights the Museum has to offer, get to know the unknown and exotic part of Croatian history.

For tourist groups, individual and group visits and children's groups, we approve discounts. We also offer individual arrangements and co-operate with tourist agencies, hotels and campsites.

- In our Oldtimer Club we have a dedicated area for relaxation and rest, that can also be used for organizing lectures and various types of corporate / private events.

We look forward to your visit and future cooperation,
Your Museum of Historical Vehicles and Industrial Heritage Scardona Park
