    I found it really interesting, in rooms on either side of the mausoleum there is information about the death of Tito.

    I don't know why I say "surprisingly" nice, but I actually mostly enjoyed this museum. I took advantage of the free Sunday admission, as it seems a lot of others did.

    First thing I noticed is that a lot of people were gathering in the main hall, I guess sort of an assembly or performance space? Wasn't sure what was going on, but around noon they had some live pianists playing music, which I thought was awesome. I didn't sit around to watch it, but the music added a nice atmosphere to the museum and echoed through the galleries, keeping chatter down.

    They do lay out a bit of a chronological path for you, starting with the ground floor and making your way up to the [third] floor. The path is rudimentarily marked out with decals on the floor.

    Sure, they lack a lot of 'famous' artwork, but what is art? Some of the work could be just as good as any of the crap that gets talked about time and time again from some of the other European or US museums. I thought some of the work was better, to be honest. But it's Serbian... no room for that in Art History textbooks right? On the other hand, there were some galleries that I blazed through, finding it uninteresting.

    To each their own, but overall I was impressed and glad I went, as I had been on the fence about it.

    Located in a street behind the Parliament Building, a neighborhood yet to be touched by the urban renovation which is storming in Belgrade, there is this old garage, a humble and meaningful place where precious and beautiful cars are parked.
    It looks like they don't want to brag, just sitting there unaware of there significance and charm.
    A very pleasant place, just don't be in a hurry, enjoy and maybe after breathing the special atmosphere sit at the cafe for a nice Serbian coffee which will be kindly served with a delicious piece of pastry.

    Loved this museum. It's far from being only post-related. There is a bunch of stuff related to communication, including old machines and vehicles. It's clear that this place doesn't receive a lot of attention, but it definitely deserves some love.

    It's out of the center and in the middle of apartment blocks, so you get a taste for 'real Belgrade' streets. The museum is a lot larger than I expected! The rooms just kept going back and back. I was the *only* person there, which was heaven for me, as I was able to geek out on all the fascinating old machines... machines that, in part, I grew up with; it's hard to imagine the time when some of this old 'junk' was cutting age technology.

    It made me think... there actually probably isn't a lot of this stuff still in existence. Offices around the world would have multitudes of these oversized giants, but as technology advanced, a lot of it went to the scrapyard and now there isn't a ton of it around. Stuff like this should be preserved exactly the same as any other dusty clay pot or doubloon you'd find in a history museum.

    even if you are not professionaly biased (as we are), it is a marvelous insight into another era (mostly the beggining of the 20th century), an extraordinary burgeois villa of a geographer introducing several terms naming karstic features (like dolines, poljes), influenced territorial and ethnic history of Serbia and Kingdom of Yugoslavia, participating in the signing of treaty after WW1, receiving high prizes / acknowledgements from Viennese, British, American geographical societies. Take your time to read the descriptions, hear the custos's explanation of details in the house and from professor's life. Really great little museum, worth the little trouble to find it (not far from Skadarlija, ask locals - they should know where this place is).

    This museum is currently hosting an exhibition by the society of applied arts. Most of the art is pretty abstract or modern, and can be a bit hit and miss. Kudos to the students for giving it a good go. After May, the exhibition will close. I was told by the staff that the city museum will be closing permanently after that.

    Despite the fact that the Observatory had many difficulties in its existence, it still exists and works, it is very happy. They also have a huge scientific literature, which is very pleasing.
