 The beginings of the museum activities in Macedonia are unseparatelly connected to the person and the name of Dr. Nikola Nezlobinski and the museum in Struga. 80 years ago, way back in 1928, this educated and respected Russian emigrant whose destiny and life carried him away from his country, way to Macedonia in Struga, in one of the wooden cotages of his ambulance will open the doors for the firs collection, founding by that the bases of the future Museum of natural science in Struga, and at whole of the museology in Macedonia. In 1938, this exhibition becomes permanent display and was presented in the new building in which is stil placed today. Immaculate in its concept and with the presented material mostly collected and prepared, and displayed by Nezlobinski him self, the collection did not lose of its value and authenticity during the years. On the contrary it become more valuable as an historical and documentary value, as a testimony of one time, one diferent Struga and one completely diffrent eco system, now gone forever. Today 80 years later, the museum in Struga is a modern institution within which, besides the department of natural science and biology, there are also the arheological,ethnological and the department of history and the artistic department.
