  • It's a very good experience. The collection is very great. Dresses for women and men show us like Serbia (and Yugoslavia), was before to move toward the West in 19th century. The dresses are gorgeous and entrance price is cheap. I suggest you to visit it.
  • A must in Belgrade to understand the culture and the history of the country. But, like many other museums in the city, the lack of information-description (even in Serbian!) makes it hard to understand what you see... You'll encounter some amazing pieces of art of artefacts, but you'll never know what they are, or when-where they come from...
  • Dobar muzej
  • Not the greatest museum Belgrade has to offer but still worth a visit
  • An ecellent museum. Highly recommended.
