  • A great history of the Balkans. Many original artifacts.
  • Wonderful guide gave an excellent tour. House is filled with furniture family used, portraits, artwork, ceremonial items etc. It is small and easy to appreciate. Some of the furnishings are quite beautiful varied and unexpected. Definitely take a tour to understand the context.
  • Thanks to our guide Oskar this sightseeing tour was an unforgettable experience for us! We heard a lot of interesting stories from the past and learned so much about Montenegro's history. This museum is a must see.
  • The best center of balkan history
  • Nice inside although outside looks simple for one royal palace. I like it.
