We love visiting money/bank museums in different cities. We have discovered over the last few years that these museums are usually a) free and b) excellent as they are located in stunning palace-like buildings of a bygone era. The display is quite small, however ticks all the boxes, plenty of money to look at, you can run your hands over folds of money, and lift a gold ingot. We also learned all about the financial crash caused by the war in the 1990s and even had our pictures printed onto Serbian bank notes. All good fun. Definitely worth a visit.

Note: make sure you have photo id as you will need it to get in.

I hadn't read about this anywhere and was only told about it by our guide on a free walking tour. Essentially, between 10am-4pm Monday to Friday, you can enter the bank (bring photograph ID) and head to the money museum. The museum has plenty of historical currency and has information in English.

It traces the development of money in Serbia then throughout the Yugoslavia period and into today. It is crazy to see the multiple billion dinar notes that were issued during hyper-inflation.

Keen for a souvenir? Well, you can get your photograph taken and it comes out on a printed dinar replica note! How much does the museum and this personalised Serbian takeaway cost? Nothing! A really cool thing to do, just be prepared to try a couple of times to be granted access (we were denied entry one day then allowed the next).

If you hand over your ID at the entrance you can make your way up to the small museum. This on its own is nice enough, the exhibitions are well presented and would be very interesting if you liked currency. The building itself provides a nice setting. What makes it different from other little niche museums is that they make a bank note with your face in it. This is a great little souvenir and takes less than two minutes. The whole thing is also free!

The bank hosts a small exhibition room where different coins and bills are shown. There are some good explanations about the effects of the massive inflation they were facing during the war. In the end you will get a bill with your photo printed onto it.
They have a strict dress code (no shorts) and they sometimes wont let you enter if there is a group inside. That's why we only were let in after we came for the third time.

The National Bank of Serbia visitor center isn't hard to find but it doesn't seem very popular. We were the only ones there during the entire we visited. It was nice to have the exhibit to ourselves. To get there we had to cross a construction area so be careful. Once inside the first thing we learned was you are not allowed to wear shorts inside. My son and I had to return to the hotel, change from shorts to pants, and then return. I provided my passport and we headed upstairs. The exhibits display currency from ancient times to modern day. There are a couple of hands on displays which are interesting. At the end of the visit you can have your own banknote made for free which was fun. I found the explanation of Serbia's past hyperinflation experience very interesting. Our son found the history interesting it was a nice break from the crowds. If you have the time I would make sure to include this location in your visit.
