With a history spanning 7,000 years, Belgrade has made a point of showcasing her vibrant and fascinating past through her many museums. The cityâ€™s museums will take you on a tour of the Serbian capital and Serbian and European history in general, starting from the prehistoric times all the way up to the former socialist rule that marked the second half of the 20th century.
Aside from the cityâ€™s historical museums, Belgrade is also home to some of the finest art museums in this part of Europe, where you can indulge in fabulous works of art that wouldnâ€™t feel out of place at Londonâ€™s National Gallery or in Berlinâ€™s Gemaldegalerie. So, if youâ€™re looking for things to do in Belgrade, these are all excellent starting points.
What follows is a list of some of the best museums in Belgrade. However, the list of great museums goes on further. Aside from the ones outlined here, we also recommend visiting the Museum of African Art, the Ethnographic Museum, the Railway Museum, The Jewish Historical Museum, and Belgrade City Museum. Other great ways to learn about Serbian history is a visit to one of the royal palaces.
Most museums in Serbia are closed on Mondays.
