The museum came into being in 1952 as an idea of the most famous man from Trebinje, a poet and a diplomat Jovan Dučić. First archaeological excavations by the museum were conducted in 1957 at the location of church of St. Peter in Zavala. First publication named Trebinje I by Vladimir Korać was published in 1966. In 1975 the museum started a magazine Tribunija. The museum disposes of 1.500 m2of usable area, out of which about 800 m2is exhibition space. Permanent displays and legacies:
