Protective measures carried out on the third floor of the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb
On Monday, March 23, and on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, protective measures were taken in order to ensure the safety of artefacts on the third floor of the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb. The Prehistoric and Egyptian collections are situated on the third floor, both damaged in a series of earthquakes on Sunday, March 22, 2020.
The Archaeological Museum in Zagreb is currently waiting for specialists to determine the structural state of the building. Two fissures were noticed at the edges of the roof on both sides of the building; therefore, the stability of the chimney is questionable. The plaster is damaged on the exterior of the building and numerous cracks are visible in the interior.
Minimal number of employees is working at the Museum, in accordance with the Decisions of the Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia, with the aim of preventing the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus.
