The Museum Žeravica founder Milivoj Žeravica started collecting old tractors in the 70s. It started while he was trying to get a Fordson 10-20 HP tractor that his father Milorad Žeravica had owned working again. Soon after, he began gathering other old tractors. That collection became a museum exhibition in 1991 when Museum Žeravica was opened by his son Čedomir Žeravica.
Initially, the small collection of tractors was housed in an old shed. Today the tractors—along with old vehicles, electronic devices, toys, musical instruments, tools, military equipment, and bicycles—are held in a specially-built facility. The star of the collection is a 1920 Hart-Parr 30, the oldest tractor in Serbia.
Every year museum organizes an event called “Zalazak u svitanju” (“Dusk at Dawn”), during which they take tractors and other vehicles out and drive them in convoy.
