The "Staro selo Museum" in Kumrovec — a unique open-air museum in Croatia — is an ethnographical museum in situ, famous for its thirty vernacular buildings, preserved or restored, in which the museum exhibitions are staged. They show the traditional way of life in the Sutla area as it was at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz's family household is situated at the outskirts of the village and mounts a historical and ethnological display. Besides its architecture, the museum shows objects thematically exhibited according to various crafts and customs typical for the Hrvatsko Zagorje region in the late 19th century.
