  • beautiful to look at, there are many exhibitions, ordinary ones, active all year, and the stra ordinary, one or two bedrooms. And on two floors you see very much, who wants and has time must pass. The ordinary ones are dressing in all of former Yugoslavia, and houses in the past and home organization and how people lived at various places in the former Yugoslavia. Very nice all

  • We bought a ticket but we were waiting a lot...if you have time its nice to go and visit! Its very old fashioned museum. There are interesting things to see. Maby they should modernize it 
  • In parallel, Mihalivo Street, Kalemegdan is located near. Close to the tram stop. We don't know at the time we went özgümüydü that day were free. It belongs to the Balkan region life and traditions are able to obtain brief information about. a maximum of 1 hour 3 floors but tourist attractions. I say we navigate to recognize the Balkan culture.

  • 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.
