Ptuj Castle
Ptuj Castle through the centuries. 
Ptuj Regional Museum is a special museum with collections and sections for archaeology, history, cultural history, ethnology, restoration workshops and other services. It was founded in 1893, when the Museum Society in Ptuj was established, and archaeological finds were exhibited in the then lower grammar school.
In 1895 Professor Franc Ferk donated numerous artefacts of various types to the museum, which was then named after the donor – Ferk’s Municipal Museum. Over the years, the exhibition area became too small, so the museum moved to the former Dominican monastery in 1928.
After 1945 the castle complex was placed under the management of the museum, and so it acquired most of its present facilities. The museum continued to extend the geographical scope of its activities, and so in 1963 it was renamed, Ptuj Regional Museum. At present the museum covers the wider area of Ptuj and Ormož, famous for its rich prehistoric and ancient sites (Roman Poetovio), the period of the migrations of peoples, medieval and modern monuments, which bear witness to the cultural and economic importance of Ptuj and its surroundings, as well as of rich folklore traditions.
