Museum of African Art

About
An important aspect of Museum work is publishing, which is based on the regular publication of exhibition catalogues, monographs, texts and articles by African Studies experts and professionals, as well as the "AFRIKA: Studies in Art and Culture" journal. Another field of work for the Museum are visiting exhibitions: both hosting and travelling outside the MAA space into new display spaces and among "new" museum visitors present a challenge and a reason to use every possible chance to organise exhibitions and programs in the country and abroad. Besides exhibitions, the presentation of the cultural heritage of Africa is achieved at the Museum through popular programs such as the Afro Festival, AFRAM and Coloured World which, through lectures, film screenings, art and music workshops, thematic evenings and concerts - expose the richness of African creativity. For more than thirty years this institution has made a significant contribution to promoting and fostering cultural relations and encouraging the principles of multiculturalism and cultural diversity. Endorsing the importance of African and non-European cultural and artistic heritage in general is the foundation upon which the overall work of the Museum of African Art in Belgrade is based.

opened in 1977, it is the first and only museum dedicated to african cultures in the region of southeastern europe.
pieces are organized according to ethnic groups presented with photos and labels.

Beautifull museum

There's a lot to see, though it looks a bit small. From the tribes stories with masks, instruments, photos, tools to the audio for some more information. The outside of museum looks great - all in African art - tiles, facade, colors. Recommend!

Hardly worth a visit
Nov 2015 • Solo
The display is mediocre, mostly focusing on tribes from Mali and Ivory Coast and their masks and musical instruments. Explanations are scarce and rare. The area is very small and the visit is done in well less than an hour. Gift shop can hardly be called that way, there is no food for sale nor is the exterior interesting in any way (there is only one hut, without any explanations). The price is 150 RSD (a bit over 1 EUR), but it is not worth even that. There is nothing inviting or appealing about this museum and even the guy at the entrance was sort of amazed that somebody actually came in to see the exhibition.

Well Worth a Visit!
May 2015 • Solo
I visited the Museum of African Art by accident, since it happened to be the venue for a diplomatic event, Africa Day 2015 hosted by the African ambassadors (including North Africa) accredited to the Republic of Serbia. I wandered through the museum, and I was amazed by the collection. According to Wikipedia and the City of Belgrade website, the museum began in 1977 based on the collection of a Yugoslav diplomat, Zdravko Pečar and his wife, Veda. The masks, musical instruments, and other cultural artifacts are evidence of the developed handicrafts and imaginations of the native peoples of West Africa. While the explanations are not so extensive, I found the displays themselves to be very interesting. Some of the masks seemed to represent alien beings who would not look out of place on a “Star Wars” movie set. The Museum of African Art and the Aeronautical Museum near the airport are both well of the usual tourist path, but both are special and well worth a visit.
