A library with the major works of Alija Izetbegović is located on the ground floor of the Ploca Tower, next to the reception area of the Museum “Alija Izetbegović”. The works are in Bosnian, but the major works are also translated into different languages. His most famous works, such as “Islam Between East and West”, “Islamic Declaration”, “My Escape to Freedom” and others, can be seen and read there.
When it comes to its holdings, the Library of the Museum is currently in the enrichment phase.
It also houses some of the Alija Izetbegović’s major works translated into different foreign languages (Turkish, English, Arabic, French…). The Museum is currently working on procurement of some 40 titles of other authors.
The purpose of the Museum Library is to assist young researchers, students and all interested persons in their research work. All of the museum literary holdings can be read in the Museum area dedicated for that purpose.
The permanent museum exhibition is located in the towers Kapi-kula Ploča and Širokac. In the Ploča tower, the life of Alija Izetbegović as statesman and politician is displayed on chronologically arranged exhibition boards, accompanied by text and photographs. In the Širokac tower, the exhibition is dedicated to Izetbegović's role as the Supreme Commander in the defense of Bosnia and Herzegovina from the Serbian agression.
Established in the recent times, the Museum „Alija Izetbegović“ offers modern answers to questions from the past, but also sets the foundation for the future. Through its objective scientific approach, it encourages young people, intellectuals and researchers to approach modern history with expertise and knowledge.
The Museum educational programs are designed for elementary and secondary school students. They include professional tours of the permanent museum exhibition, interactive school workshops, pedagogical and educational publications, lectures, special programmes observing important historical dates, etc.
