About
Today’s Museum of Yugoslavia was called the Museum of Yugoslav History until the end of 2016. The name was changed twenty years after the Museum of Yugoslav History was established (1996) by merging and simultaneously dissoluting of the two institutions: the Memorial Center “Josip Broz Tito” and the Museum of the Revolution of Yugoslav Nations and Ethnic Minorities. Due to the socio-historical circumstances, wars and the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, these museums became a burden, unwanted witnesses of the past, traces of which were being thoroughly erased from the present. The funds of these two institutions served as the basis on which, according to a political decision, the new museum was established. Even though this musealization of Yugoslavia was supposed to “put it on the shelf” in accordance with the understanding of a museum as a storage place for “old and unnecessary things”, it turned out that the collections, histories, documentation and employees of these two insti

Memories of Yugoslavia ... not so long ago there was country.
Oct 2019
If somebody would ask me to single out the 1 must see location in Belgrade I would choose the Museum of (Former) Yugoslavia. Of course there other locations for you to include on the list of places to visit in the capital of Serbia, however for me that was the most interesting.
So briefly what you'll find here:
- the Mausoleum of Tito - the ruler of Yugoslavia till 1980 - some calling him a dictator , some regarding him as hero - regardless of how you look at him the final resting place of Tito is a must visit place.
- the Museum of Yugoslavia - (split in 2 sections/buildings) presenting you the brief history of the country that very violently disintegrated in 1990 - for sure most you remember the civil war that raged (in various forms) for a decade - NATO raids, destruction and international peacekeeping operations as an aftermath...
So, overall it is a must see place - gives you an insight on the history of the a country that got split from the inside and how from the ashes of the Communist Republic of Yugoslavia, the modern countries of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Slovenia, etc ...
If you want to know more about history and the history of the Balkans in general this is the place for you to check out.
Parking is available close to the museum, entrance is for a certain fee , but pocket friendly don't have to worry about it and if you want some trinkets from the place there is a gift shop where you can buy some memorabilia ... it is definitely a must see location.

Very interesting museum of the history of Yugoslavia
Nov 2019 • Friends
Museum of Yugoslavia is the museum, where you can see the history of the country called Yugoslavia (which existed from 2nd World War to the death of Tito dictator). It is located in a communist building, in a park in the surroundings of Belgrade. Here you can see the history of this country already disappeared with some objects, also you can see a lot of gifts to Tito from the all parts of the world and the Tito's Mausoleum, in the House of Flowers, one of the buildings of this complex. A top if you want to know the recent history of Yugoslavia, but some people can believe that it is a tribute to Tito.

It is a must

If you visit Belgrade you must go to Museum of Yugoslavia. It contains almost the whole modern history of this country. Even if it is a poor museum because probably it does not get enough funds from the west-friendly governments, history has many sides and some of them are presented there.

Worth several hours to visit 3 buildings
Dec 2019
House of Flowers with Tito's tomb, model of the blue train he used to travel cross country and a selection of tops of batons given as tributes to him. A second building with various artifacts from Tito's time paired with a historical view of the rise of Communism across the world. Finally, a museum with videos, writings, artifacts depicting contemporary 90's and beyond as Yugoslavia changed to separate countries.

Great re-cap of Yugoslavian history and the importance of Tito’s leadership of multi-ethnic socialist state.

Nice and effortless interpretation of post WWII Yugoslavia through documents, photos and relevant artefacts. Plus the mausoleum to Marshall Tito and the First Lady Jovanka Broz. Their personal history is both fascinating and intricately interwoven into the fabric of Yugoslavia. Pleasant setting on the slope of Dedinje neighbourhood, with nice sculpture garden, and the main museum building in nice park. Funky Yugoslavian themed souvenirs in the gift shop - might be your best gift from Belgrade.

Brilliant - weirdly eclectic!
Sep 2019
This museum is in the grounds of the Tito Mausoleum. It is a little way out of town and I would recommend taking a taxi or public transport as it's a good hour's walk (and not a particularly pleasant walk at that). I originally went to see Tito's Mausoleum but this is part of the entrance ticket price and turned out to be a highlight for me. Firstly it's laid out chronologically so make sure you enter from the bottom of the hill for any of it to make any sense. The first section is an impressive display of gifts given to Tito by various heads of state. Going onto the history of Yugoslavia its exhibits become increasingly and brilliantly eclectic from a pair of old roller skates to a plastic supermarket shopping basket apparently from the first self-service shop to open in Belgrade. You can easily spend an hour in here, longer if you like to read up on everything on display. There's a small gift shop, toilets and coffee bar. A highlight of my trip to Belgrade and I'm so glad I made the effort to visit.

Some very interesting memorabilia in a beautiful part of the city. Tito's burial place is here in the house of flowers and is worth seeing. Maybe a video in english would be nice or a guided tour so it gives more of an insight into this interesting history of Yugoslavia.

Thank you to all at the museum!
