The Cleveland Museum of Croatian Culture and Heritage opened today its Christmas exhibition. The exhibition will run until January 15, 2020.

The Christmas exhibit shows the motifs and costumes that Croats once wore, and especially how it looked during the Christmas holidays. Through his unselfish efforts, the Museum of Croatian Heritage managed to preserve the tradition of the Christmas culture of the Croats. A great opportunity for Croatian children to look and see how people once did to prepare for Christmas and also for Americans to learn about Croatian culture. This exhibition has been preparing for 35 years on an annual basis. This event was also celebrated with the tamburitza band Žumberčani, who have been active and performing for years not only in Cleveland, but all over America and Canada, and guest appearance in Croatia. The Museum of Croatian Culture and Heritage was founded in 1983 and encompasses the Library, the Croatian Cultural Garden and the museum itself. The museum is held by generous donations and sponsors and also by its volunteers.

Museum Curator Branka Malinar invites all Croatians who live in northeast Ohio to come and see this special exhibition and to get acquainted with the activities of the museum, learn more about its origins and culture and, of course, all other guests who want to learn about Croatian culture and its customs.

The museum is open Fridays from 12pm – 6pm
