Feel Serbia – Love Serbia
The occurrence of this, as well as other museums in our capital, is closely related to the creation of the National Museum in 1844.
The first two areas that were represented in the museum are archeology and numismatics, so that in the later period the museum presented history and ethnology. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the First Serbian Uprising, in 1954, an exhibition on this and the Second Serbian Uprising was set up in the museum. Later, this item was transferred to the museum of Prince Miloš Obrenović who is located at Topčider, and exists within the History Museum, that is, these two museums represent a thematic unit.
In 1963, the museum began to operate separately, as an independent unit with the idea to present the entire history of the Serbian people. Today, the tasks of the Historical Museum are: the collection of weapons and military equipment, the storage of signs, flags, memorial objects, geographical and historical maps, various atlases and objects of historical significance.
The museum presented its exhibitions in Europe as well as in the United States, and has toured many countries of the world. “Collection of Historical Museum of Serbia” is the name of the permanent publication of this museum.
The working hours of the museum are every day, except Monday from 10 am to 5 pm, and is located on the Nikola Pašić square.
