For the birth centennial of the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic a Domicile Museum was opened which has permanent exhibition of the archeological rests even from the neolithic era, further on there are some from the Roman times and finally some from the times when the Croats arrived to this area. In the Museum there is also a collection of the Mestrovic's works and the valuable ethnological collection. In the nearby village of Otavice Mestrovic had built a mausoleum for himself and the members of his family, which has great artistic value and is a very known cultural monument.
After the Homeland War when Drnis was devastated and burnt down and the inhabitants moved to other places, a period of renewal and development came.
