133 museums from above list are registered by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage in State Regster of Museums.

When preparing the list, we worked on the basis of the legal regulations in force in the field of museology, taking into account the necessity of defining fundamental operating standards for museum institutions. The basic criterion for a museum to be entered on the list was for its statute or rules and regulations to be approved by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.

With a view to ensuring easy access to information, we also provide below a link to the list of registered museums entered on the State Register of Museums kept by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
