“Museum of Rep/Srpska”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

A work in progress when I visited but very interesting nonetheless. Very moving exhibition concerning WW2 and activities of Nazis & Ustashe in the area.

“Spacious, well-planned and helpful staff”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

The layout of the museum is better than most in the region. Although some display cases look a little outdated, most items are labelled, and if you speak the local language the information panels are both interesting and relevant. Although some information is translated into English, this is sporadic and occasionally illogical, with one display being translated, but the one next to it not, for example.

“Comprehensive !”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

You must see this excellent museum when you are visiting Banja Luka. It shows a comprehensive history of the area from stone age to modern times. It is well laid out and so informative. I came away with a much better understanding of Serbia. There are ethnographical artifacts - clothing, musical instruments, tools, and so on. Every exhibit has explanations in English. There are exhibits of Nature, Archeology, History, Contemporary History, Ethnology and I understand there is also a library. Particularly moving is an exhibit of atrocities during WWII (explanations, upsetting photographs) against the Serbs. This museum is so informative, and well put-together.
