Digital PPMHP

The Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka gathers, safeguards, studies and exhibits museum exponents from the territory of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. Over the 128 years of its existence, we have gathered over 60,000 exponents that have been systemized into 47 collections.
Our exponents date from prehistory to the present. There are archaeological artefacts, historical and cultural-historical objects, works of art, traditional heritage pieces and all manner of materials from the local seafaring tradition.
Besides physical items, the intangible heritage of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County is also encompassed: specific human skills, knowledge, recollections, beliefs, customs, music…
With its digital collection, the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka contributes to the process of digitalization, presentation and accessibility of the entire museum inventory in a single place. This process furthermore encourages innovative interpretations of digitized museum materials, while documentation based on the use of contemporary media and technologies will overcome the limitations of location and reach – and arouse the interest of – the highest possible number of people. Everyone who is interested can therefore experience the wealth of our Museum’s inventory in a single overview: both the exhibits in our permanent display and those stored in our vaults. We are hereby presenting the first ten per cent of our wide-ranging inventory, which will be regularly enlarged with new content, and we will ultimately present our entire collection in this manner.
Each exponent is presented by a photograph and basic data: its designation, inventory number, dimensions, materials and technique, date and place of origin and discovery, the collection in which it is held, and information on whether it is on exhibit in the permanent display.
