I was surprised and impressed with the historical section of the museum. It was a beautiful building and the story laid out was interesting. The modern sections were honest and fair.

We drove here to find out about the history of the country and were not disappointed. It explains why there are many Turkish, Italian and other influences to be found here. Try the café opposite too - very good value and nice ambience.

This well laid out collection of artifacts dates from the Stone Age. Highlight was the bullet holes in the tunic Prince Danilo was wearing when shot. Also enjoyed the stories of the partisans in World War II and their July 13 uprising. The videos needed...More
