  • This is not a museum of Yugoslavia, it is a museum about Tito, and not a very good one at that. Everything is in praise of this nasty dictator. The only mention of his unpleasant side was a note...

  • For 400 dinars you get access to a small museum on mostly Tito related memorabilia, and the tomb of Tito himself, also known as the House of Flowers. Now, if the museum would be named as Museum of Tito, then all would be fine, and it would get an easy 5, given how well maintained it is. Everything is in order, museum collections is superb, English translations are mostly OK etc. However, Tito is not Yugoslavia, and I was super sad to realize that there was barely anything on the country itself here. The National History Museum too turned out to be an art gallery of sorts. I am honestly confused whether there are any museums out there that tell the more political history of the country or not, at all.
  • The Museum of Yoguslavia is a must for every history fun who wishes to get a glimpse of former Yoguslavia as much as its importance in the world stage. It seems that a changed of name to Museum of Tito would be a most suited to the Museum content since his personality overshadows allí other artefacts about Yoguslavua. The gifts of head of states, of organizations and even by ordinary yoguslav citizens compse more then fifty porcent of the exhibition. A smaller place is given to the reality of life of ordinary Yoguslav citizen. Although the museum acknowledge that the yoguslav state did employ opression it seems that no place is reserved to describing it in the museum. A pity.
