Gazi Husrev Bey’s Museum is dedicated to Gazi Husrev Bey (1480-1541) – the Governor of Bosnia and Sarajevo’s greatest benefactor.
The museum is located in Kuršumlija Medresa, one of the many objects built in the city by Gazi Husrev Bey.
The museum’s collection can be divided into eight thematic sections which fill the rooms that were once used by students at the medresa.
As they pass through the facility, visitors can come to learn more about Gazi Husrev Bey as a historical figure, his endowment (vafuk) and the medresa itself.
The central area in Kuršumlija Medresa is made up of dershani (small lecture halls) which serve as exhibit spaces for the collection of rare items that were part of Gazi Husrev Bey’s vakuf. There is also the muvekithana, a room with instruments used to determine the exact time, as well as a room dedicated to the bequeathed structures that were damaged during the Siege of Sarajevo (1992-1995).
In one of the rooms visitors can watch a documentary on Gazi Husrev Bey, the establishment of his vakuf and the objects that were built in Sarajevo as part of his generous endowment.
