Description

The museum was founded and open for public on the 400th anniversary of the great 1573 Peasants' Revolt. It is situated in the 18th century baroque palace of the Oršić family and was built at the site of a medieval fort by Krsto Oršić, a member of an ancient Croatian noble family and his rich wife Josipa, born Zichyi. The palace was built in 1756, as is engraved on the entrance portal, where the family's coat-of arms used to be.
