The mission of the Museum of Recent History Celje is to ensure the permanent and uninterrupted performance of the public service of preserving, exploring, presenting, exhibiting and popularising the mobile cultural heritage from the fields of history and ethnology from the beginning of the 20th century onwards. The museum, in compliance with the rules and goals of the museum profession, houses the mobile cultural heritage of Celje and the Celje region and presents it to the widest circle of the public. The field of activity connects the recent national and regional history and ethnology with modernity and actuality. This is the basis both for the collecting policy and museum collections as well as for other versatile popularisation activities and the museum’s offer. Special attention is given to younger visitors of the museum, who can take part in pedagogical programs and activities.
Museum of Recent History Celje, which has adopted a strategic document regarding its activity, is at the same time a scientific research centre and an educational institution. By reviving museum items and their stories, the museum sheds light on the past, helps to understand the present and co-create the future. It is a place for discovering, learning, socialising and contemplating.
