A museum named “the Drazen Petrovic Memorial Center” was founded in his honor, and constitutes a co-operative effort led by the Drazen Petrovic Foundation in conjunction with the Croatian government, the city of Zagreb and the Croatian Museum of Sports. The Drazen Petrovic Memorial Center idea originated from his parents, Biserka and Jole Petrovic, and was supported with the contributions of Croatian architects Andrija Rusan and Niksa Bilic. All of the articles presented in the center have been collected and categorized by the Croatian Museum of Sports. The organization and operations of the center have been provided by the Drazen Petrovic Foundation, which is led by Petrovic’s family. The Drazen Petrovic Memorial Center contains his No. 3 New Jersey Nets jersey and the watch that stopped when he died in a car crash. The Drazen Petrovic Memorial Center features 1000 memorabilia items and a video of his basketball highlights.

The official opening of the museum was held on June 7, 2006. while the official opening of the Drazen Petrovic Memorial Center to the public began at the end of December 2006. The square on which the center is operated upon has been renamed to Drazen Petrovic Square in his honor.

Petrovic’s No. 3 jersey was retired by the Nets in 1993, and in 2002 he was posthumously enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2013, he was voted the Best European Basketball player in History by players at the 2013 FIBA EuroBasket.
