  • Within the Kalemegdan Fortress you will be able to see this impressive collection of tanks and artillery. Note that this is all outside the museum and free to look at / click pictures with! The museum itself has collections of medieval weaponry and you need to pay around 200 din entry fee. Note that a majority of the explanatory panels were only in Serbian and only a few in English when I visited in Aug 2022. In my opinion the outdoor display was more fun to see. Note that there's a separate museum of torture equipment which while nearby is separate and has it's own entry fee.
  • One of the best museums in Belgrade. Tells a lot of the story of Yugoslavia until the late NATO bombing. It could use better international descriptions and lighting, as the later in most exhibitions was a little dark to see. I specially liked the more medieval part, but it’s such an interesting place. Must go if you’re in Belgrade.
