The Croatian Teaching and Literary Union founded the Croatian Schools Museum in 1901. It is located in the building of the Croatian Teacher's House. It is the only museum in Croatian specializing in education; material from the past and present of Croatian schooling and teaching are collected, studies and exhibited. The permanent exhibition consists of about 1,000 exhibits, the unit called Paris Room having been given a prize at the World Exposition in Paris in 1900. The Teaching Library has more than 30,000 professional books and rarities (the oldest books is from the 16th century). From time to time, thematic, occasional and cultural and historical exhibitions are organized, as well as lectures, launches, professional congresses and educational workshops and playrooms.
