Within their walls, museums of Serbia keep invaluable historical and cultural treasures. The first museums in Serbia were founded in the second half of the 19th century and are among the first cultural institutions formed within the national program of the modern Serbian state. The first Serbian museum under the name Muzeum srpski was founded in 1844 – today’s National Museum in Belgrade. This moment marked the beginning of systematic collection and protection of cultural heritage in Serbia. Soon after the establishment of the National Museum, the first specialized museums in Belgrade, Vojvodina, and the interior of Serbia were formed. By 1945, there were 20 museums in Serbia, and after the Second World War, their number increased significantly.
In Serbia, today there are about 100 museums and most of them are located in buildings that are themselves cultural property under the protection of the state. There are dozens of museums in Belgrade, of which our tour includes the tour of the three most visited ones – the National Museum, the Museum of Yugoslavia and the Nikola Tesla Museum.
