All museum holdings were packed in crates and moved to the safest part of the building, the ground floor.
Twice during April of 1993, when the town of Biograd was under mortar fire, the splinters from projectiles, which had hit a neighbouring building, damaged the roofing and tiles of the museum, windows were damaged and the static stability of the building was harmed.
There was no damage to the holdings.
