About
Today’s Museum of Yugoslavia was called the Museum of Yugoslav History until the end of 2016. The name was changed twenty years after the Museum of Yugoslav History was established (1996) by merging and simultaneously dissoluting of the two institutions: the Memorial Center “Josip Broz Tito” and the Museum of the Revolution of Yugoslav Nations and Ethnic Minorities. Due to the socio-historical circumstances, wars and the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, these museums became a burden, unwanted witnesses of the past, traces of which were being thoroughly erased from the present. The funds of these two institutions served as the basis on which, according to a political decision, the new museum was established. Even though this musealization of Yugoslavia was supposed to “put it on the shelf” in accordance with the understanding of a museum as a storage place for “old and unnecessary things”, it turned out that the collections, histories, documentation and employees of these two insti

    Excellent tour, fascinating history
    There is a lot here and it would be difficult to appreciate it fully without taking the tour. Take the tour! The English-speaking tour was at 11 on the Saturday we went, and it was excellent. We learned so much about the history of Yugoslavia and Serbia and Tito’s place in it. It would have been much less engaging without the context provided by the tour, although still worth seeing. These were some of the best-kept grounds and gardens we have seen in Serbia.

    Interesting historical perspective. The museum covers the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and Socialist Yugoslavia as well as the life of Josip Broz Tito. Tito's grave is located in one of the museum buildings. A lot of interesting information about Tito.

    Only go if you love Tito ir believe in Titoism
    The whole museum should not be called museum of Yugoslavia but the Tito Museum . Nevertheless , it is a museum containing all things Tito and his brand of socialism . So if you are into the gifts he gets around the world from other world leaders , it r how revered he is in life, then go ahead and visit the museum . It is a small museum - good for a 20-30minutes visit but as it is out of the way of the main tourist area around Belgrade fortress and old town, unless you really love him and see his tomb at the adjoining house of flowers , then drop by .

This museum was ok, but we started it off with a tour around the House of Flowers. The tour definitely elevated the whole experience, it's was very disappointing that it was just the two of us and the tour guide. It was super informative, and I learned more than if we had just wandered. The tour lady was great too, answering all our questions as well. Wasn't too long and boring either. The second half you do by yourself and it was nice to wander around and look at relics of a bygone era. Would recommend the tour greatly.

I cannot understand why this place gets such great reviews. The main museum is a collection of tat given to Tito by other countries. Do you really want to pay to see an ashtray with a JAT Airlines logo on it or a 1970s telephone or the keys to some cities? You don't learn anything about the country or its breakup into the different states. It's not a museum about the country, it's a museum about Tito. The day we visited they had the heating cranked up to tropical when it was freezing outside. Of course, we were wearing thick jumpers, winter coats, scarves etc which made the visit even more unpleasant as it was far too hot. Part of the 3rd building has reopened with a small exhibition about a children's book and author. Great if you have kids, we don't! Overall, a complete waste of time.

It was interesting, had a long thin building with some of the gifts given to Tito and there was also the Hall of Flowers, where he is buried. My only comment was that they were happy to still charge full admission even though the main museum building is currently not open (think it is being renovated)

Must visit for history lovers, showing Serbia during the 20th century post WWII, and the role of Yugoslavia during the cold war. There are different aspects and sectors of life when Yugoslavia was a country, like education, industry, sports… The museum has a huge collection of Tito gifts he received from countries around the world, and finally there is the mausoleum of Tito.

The House of Flowers is a very interesting museum that describes the times of the former Yugoslavia that was mainly under the direction of Tito. Tito was a very important person in the world's history of the XX century. He was the leader of a partisan group that led Yugoslavia to the victory during WWII. Yugoslavia was the only country in Europe that liberated from the German Nazi domination by itself. All the others depended on the US, the UK, and the Soviet Union to be liberated. Thus Yugoslavia was somewhat independent from the main cold war powers. Tito was founder of the Non-Align countries organization. He created a more "liberal" communism when compared with the Soviet Union and China communism. He promoted equality of governance in Yugoslavia. However, he was a dictator and did not prepare others or listened to others on how to continue building a balanced Yugoslavia. Finally, Yugoslavia dissolved and the dissolution was for most part violent. Overtime, the prestige of Tito has somewhat declined. The House of Flowers was his palace. It has his very interesting studio and memorabilia that in a somewhat disorganized fashion describes the history of the former Yugoslavia and Tito. It has the Tito's mausoleum and his wife is buried at his side. Years ago, the mausoleum had guards of honor; not anymore. In the past, the mausoleum was mainly visited by locals; most recently, it is mainly visited by foreigners. The gardens are nice and have some lovely sculptures that were given to him mainly by the different members of the former Yugoslavia. The museum with Titos and former Yugoslavia memorabilia looks somewhat cramped and disorganized; it is just the way the curators want to present it. A lot of objects have been collected from the citizens of Yugoslavia. It also has gifts and portraits given to Tito from other leaders around the world (Some are tacky).

The modern museum of the former Yugoslavia is under construction and not open to the public.

Entrance fee is 400 dinars. There is a nice coffee shop and very clean restrooms. The place is not crowded. It is quite peaceful and in a clear day, the gardens and fountains and the mausoleum area are lovely.

The House of Flowers is in the diplomatic neighborhood, close the embassy of Iran. The are is beautiful. The parks are nice.
It is far from Belgrade's downtown. I was at the Hilton Belgrade. I took a taxi to reach the House of Flowers. The cost was 7 US dollars. Going back, the hotel called a taxi for me and its cost was 6 dollars. Of interest, the drivers did not know the House of Flowers. The hotel provided with explanations to the drivers.

It is not the most impressive site in Belgrade; however, it reminds you that Yugoslavia was one of the main protagonists of the XX century.

We wondered through Belgrade to reach this peaceful and tranquil quarter of the city. We primarily came to pay our respects at the House of the Flowers but the museum building is worth a visit. One half is historical whereas the other follows the political and social developments of the Yugoslavian nation. Lovely gardens to take some tea in.
