A relatively small, but important museum housing displays and artifacts documenting the culture of the Sorbian people during the last millenium. The Lower and the Upper Sorbs, through an accident of history, became one of the ethnic minorities enclosed within German borders. Struggling to maintain their language and culture in spite of hostile politial control (the Nazis and Communist governments... More

Nice museum if you are interested in history of slavic people in Europe. Srpski muzej offers you a lot of information about ancient serbian tribes and their recent history.

This is a very well laid out and presented museum that allowed us to have a much better understanding of the cultural history and future of the Sorbish race. The displays were detailed and informative and the staff very helpful.

If you are interested in pottery, clothing and other artifacts, the museum has a very nice collection. If you are more interested in the history of the Sorbs, try The House of the Sorbs.

My buddy took me here because this is part of his heritage and it was quite interesting. I can't recall the fee, but it was not exorbitant. This culture is well-known for their intricate easter egg painting among other things. This place is a must if you are visiting Bautzen

I liked the iPhone-based audio tour in several languages that you can pick and choose based on number. Located in the castle, a great escape from the heat, too.

This is a very comprehensive museum of the life and culture of this small ethnic minority. The exhibits are very well done and interesting. The highlight for me was the display of clothing and traditional celebrations. The major problem for us is that there is very little English text. I don't expect everything to be in English, but it would... More

For only 3 euro you can spend as much time as you want exploring the history of the Sorbs. Art, life, history .... everything under one roof. Something I liked a lot was the exhibition of the Sorb traditional dresses and clothes for formal and informal events. Bright colors and lots of detail this is a must see exhibition. If... More

This museum is in the castle area. We had a bad weather so any museum would basically do, but this one was a nice surprise. The modernity of the current Saxon court palace in the building of the old castle is a bit striking to the simplicity and originality of this house, where you find pretty much all there is... More
