  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very nice
  • 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.
