Natural history museum

The best example of a rich and diverse bird population of the Neretva delta can be observed in the ornithological collection in Metković. Founded by famous Croatian ornithologist Dragutin Rucner. Unfortunately,  the dalmatian pelican, griffon duck and marbled teal are gone, but even today we can see bitterns and ferruginous ducks nesting in the Neretva delta. The delta is an important resting place for millions of migratory birds but also a popular destination for many nature lovers. Today, the ornithological collection is part of the Natural History Museum in Metković.

The Natural History Museum is open weekdays from 9 to 16, and Saturdays from 9 to 14 in wintertime. From June 1st till September 30th Museum is opened Monday-Saturday from 9 until 19, and Sundays from 9 to 14 . During public holidays, the museum is closed.
