Get a vivid sense of the culture and lifestyles of the Serbs before industrialization at Ethnographic Museum. Considered to be one of the oldest museums in the region, it holds some 120,000 volumes and around 200,000 objects collected over the course of a century. Here you'll see exhibits of costumes, arts and crafts, and furniture, as well as typical interiors of houses, from nomadic to Ottoman and European-style. Learn about the traditional economy through representations of rural industries, such as agronomy, livestock breeding, and beekeeping. Look at the photographs depicting the Balkan way of life, admire the collection of Pirot woven rugs, and check out the rotating temporary exhibitions. The souvenir shop offers various items of interest, including replicas of medieval jewelry.

  • Unless you really want to go here I would give it a wide birth . Just displays showing types of dress and households over the years but not done that well .  more »
  • A huge ethnographic museum. Was how much to look at. Signs in English are a big plus, it's not everywhere when you go in Eastern Europe. Several floors with stands, built environments, models of houses, etc.

  • still covers the former Yugoslavia ethnic groups but 1st floor is being refurbished. My family were the only visitors on a hot summer day - not popular at all. A pity there is no museum cafe.
  • Great museum, I loved learning about the history of the Serbs. Thank you.
