  • I was at this musem about 5 times now, when I was in highachool and also in University. The collection iy decent and it will teach you a lot about Bosnian history. There are no historical exhibitons after middle ages. Ethnological part is a must see, and natural history musem - mamals are below average. But overall it's good for learning about Bosnian history and a must see for someone who wants to learn more about culture.
  • Great museum, a lot stuff to see. You will need at least one hour to go through all its content, there are 3 buildings all of them have 2 flors.
  • You can not come to Sarajevo and not visit this museum. It is huge, so be prepared to spend minimal 3 hrs here.
  • Decent collection about Bosnian history.
  • The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is located in central Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was established in 1888, having originally been conceived around 1850.
