Alija Izetbegović Museum: A Place of Inspiration and Historical Heritage in Sarajevo. This museum is dedicated to the life and legacy of Alija Izetbegović, leader and political icon of Bosnia and Herzegovina The museum "Alija Izetbegović" is located in the area of the old city fortress in Sarajevo, in the Vratnik capitals of Ploča and Širokac. It was opened on October 19, 2007 and is dedicated to the life and work of the first president of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alija Izetbegović. It was originally opened as one of the annexes of the Museum of Sarajevo, and by the decision of the Sarajevo Canton Assembly in 2009, it became a separate public institution of this canton.

In the premises of the museum, in the Ploča and Širokac towers, there is a permanent exhibition of the museum. In the first tower, the exhibition is organized into nine smaller units. Arranged chronologically, it tells about the character and work of this statesman, from the period of his youth, through the Sarajevo process to his death in 2003. In this part of the museum, the most important world awards and recognitions that were presented to the first President of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina by various statesmen and international institutions are exhibited.

In the second tower, the exhibition is devoted to the role of Alija Izetbegović as Supreme Commander of the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the organization of resistance in the wake of the coming war. This part of the setup is divided into 6 parts. In the wall showcases of the Širokac tower, objects from the period of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina are displayed, such as uniforms, or recognitions that Alija Izetbegović received from soldiers. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the "Alija Izetbegović" Museum also organizes a mobile exhibition.

This type of exhibition is organized into 27 units, also arranged chronologically with the theme of the life and works of Alija Izetbegović. The moving set was exhibited for the first time in Istanbul, Turkey, and by the end of the same year in Pristina.
