  • Apart from the rich collection of local costumes, the remaining exhibits were poor. Officials did not know English. Reminiscent of the life-long communist period in the country.

  • Wonderful museum. Small but showcases well Serbian way of life mostly in villages until early 20th century. Ground floor showcases amazing serbian coatumes from all regions of Balkan. I never even realized there are so many costumes & what they represented. I especially loved headpieces on bride costumes. Must see. Entry is also very cheap.
  • The fantastic museum. I was there for the first time during the event The Museum Night 6 years ago. I wasn't aware that this museum have so good exibit before that. After that event I like to there from time to time.
  • It was interesting to see how people of Serbia lived or wear.
  • Seems like a lot of space is waisted on repetitive exhibits, while some more intersting things are missing.
  • Impressive, don't miss the third floor. A star out for speaking of bosnians as serbs.
