Croatian Railway Museum Zagreb
The idea and the desire to set up the Croatian Railway Museum began in the early 1966, when the Zagreb Railway Administration made a decision to set up the Railway Department at the Technical Museum in Zagreb. At that time the decision was not made because of insufficient space and too little of the expert staff. Again, 10 years later, March 27, 1986, the railway administration was again attempting to establish a railway museum as a part of the home base, but that attempt did not produce any fruit.
Only in the early 90s of the last century the idea began to be realized. On March 19, 1991, the Croatian Railway Museum was founded in Zagreb. Today, this museum operates under the HŽ-Infrastruktura d.o.o. according to the Decision of the Management Board of HŽ. On May 20, 2001, the museum was renamed into the Croatian Railway Museum, under the name of which it operates today.
Since the beginning of existence, the museum is developing in the southern part of the TŽV Gredelj, with entrance from Vukovar Street. The Gredelj Workshop halls are the ideal place to receive HŽM collections, especially because of the historic marking of one of the oldest railway industrial complexes in Croatia.
Today the Museum has 20 trams. They are located at railway stations throughout Croatia and steam locomotives from HŽM's fundus. Locomotives were stationed in the mid-1980s in the mid-1980s, at a time when steam traction in Croatia was finally withdrawn from traffic. Since then, they are valuable monuments of technical heritage.
The caretaking and restoration work was taken over by the Croatian Railway Museum shortly after its founding.
The Croatian Railway Museum continues its work as a registered museum facility but within the organizational structure of HŽ Infrastrukture d.o.o. within the Office of the Management Board.
