  • A superb Museum rich and full, we even got to the visit of a class with a student sang in front of everyone, a kind of religious song... what a voice! It has illuminated our morning!

  • This museum has two floors with an exhibition of costumes from different parts of the Balkan as well as the different tools used. Looks like that time c is stopped in this museum.

  • And the ethnographic museums of the Slavs are quite similar. Most of the differences, I think, understandable only to initiates. But inside, a good Exposition occupies several floors. That plus-in connection with various nationalities inhabiting the Balkans, it turned out.

  • 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...
  • An ecellent museum. Highly recommended.
  • Nice museum, interesting exibition
  • Not the greatest museum Belgrade has to offer but still worth a visit
