For visitors

The Archaeological Museum on Humac have the legacy of the earliest institution of this type in BiH, founded in 1884., unfortunately, during its rich history, the Museum was closed several times due to war, economic and other problems. Such inconveniences, and a general lethargy in relation to their own cultural and historical heritage whose traces are unequivocally manifesting everywhere on the territory of BiH, ultimately result in stagnation, inactivity and even decay of significant cultural institutions.

In order to prevent such a process, the local government of Ljubuški determines the custodian, J.P. Parkovi d.o.o. Ljubuški, so that the museum from the position of the archaic passive guardian has become an important participant in all activities for the valorisation of cultural heritage.For the first time in history, the Museum has an official and daily working time with expert staff. Thanks to archaeological research during the year 2017. on the wide area of Ljubuški region, this Museum, after long inactivity, restores its fundus. There is also decorative complex that belongs to the monastery or the space for the exhibition of stone monuments.
