THE MUSEUM OF
- CROATIA -
This is the only museum in the world dedicated solely to mushrooms.
Situated on the second floor of an office building overlooking Bana Jelacica square, the Museum of Mushrooms displays over 1,500 freeze-dried, preserved mushrooms in three large rooms.
Most of the collection was obtained by professor Romano Bozac, a mycologist who studied and wrote on mushrooms for over 50 years. Organized by similar types of mushrooms, each well-preserved example is labeled with a tag that indicates edibility.
The informative and friendly caretaker is always happy to talk mushrooms and point out unique specimens.
