I love fiber arts and seeing the way people dressed and lived in olden times, so I loved it. (Hubby was patient.) If you don't care for such things, it may not be your cup of tea.

The downside: The collection could be displayed in a more interactive fashion. They did seem to have an educational center for groups of children.

You can see many traditional clothes and items from all areas of Yugoslavia. There are maquets with houses and rooms how they used to be. Very interesting museum with a big variety.

Loved the textiles and costumes but now that more tourists are visiting Belgrade this museum could really do with a spruce up and more signs describing the collection in English.

A neat little look into late 18th to early 20th century Serbia. It includes clothing, living areas, and a family's decorations showing middle class living in the late 19th century.

Reasonable, but not stand-out ethnographic museum. Many 19-20th century folk costumes on the ground floor. Other artifacts and reconstructions further up. Sufficient English for the non-native and very quiet in the morning.
