Despite the sad fact that most museums in Belgrade are closed, waiting for some better times and a proper restoration, some of them still do host temporary exhibitions and/or occasionally exhibit parts of their permanent ones.
One of them is the Historical Museum of Serbia which is, very likely, one of the most active ones, not only in organizing exhibitions but in other related areas as well.
The museum’s primary concern is collecting and preserving artistic and historic material related to the history of Serbia – weapons and uniforms from medieval times and onwards. Flags, ornaments, famous people’s belongings, maps, plans, photos, postcards, and many other types of artifacts.
Being very centrally located, it is easily found, with a huge poster at its entrance always announcing the next big exhibition. Each of them has made me rethink the past in a different way, while for you, I hope, they might add a piece of the puzzle towards understanding the history of this country.
NEW EXHIBITION!! – interactive exhibition “Pupin – From Physical to Spiritual Realities” dedicated to the life and work of the great Serbian scientist and inventor Mihajlo Pupin. The exhibition focuses on his work as a scientist and a professor, his Pulitzer Prize winning autobiography, efforts to help Serbia during the First World War, covert work for the U.S. army, humanitarian work and patronage of the arts.
Open till the end of 2016. DON’T MISS IT!!
