The Museum of Herzegovina (Bajatova 4; tel/fax: 036 551 602) is situated in a beautiful part of the Old Town. It was founded in 1950 to promote the archaeological, ethnographic, literary and cultural history of Herzegovina.

There are several sections:

The Hamam Museum
The "Hamam Museum" in Mostar is an authentic cultural monument, which takes visitors back to the distant past and witnesses the most beautiful stories of the former way of living. The Hamam where museum was located, built in the late 16th and early 17th century, and today is the only preserved hamam in Mostar. It was built in the classical Ottoman style. It has modest exterior due to the economy and it was built next to the town square, a mosque or a public kitchen for practicality.

Hamam was visited by women and men regardless of their religious affiliation...During the visit of the "Hamam Museum" visitor experiences the true historical picture with a story about customs - although more accurate to say the rites - related to the cleanliness, massage and relaxation of the body and of the mind as well. Open hours: from Tuesday to Sunday 10:00 18 h.
