The visitor gets the daily lives of people of a bygone era in the different parts of the country, in addition to costumes, things of domestic use on several floors a good overview of... Modern educational approaches are indeed not to recognize the Museum is suitable also for children but often domestic scenes be readjusted very vividly by life-size dolls – dressed in region-typical costume -.

  • 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.
