The National museum in Belgrade is probably the most important museum in Serbia, with collections exhibited in a beautiful building in the center of the city. Unfortunately, its priceless collection of artifacts and works of art cannot be visited at the moment, since the museum is currently closed for the reconstruction works.
The building in which the museum is located today was built for the Treasury Directorate in 1903. In 1952, it was donated to the National Museum which has been located on the same address ever since. Since its foundation in 1844, the collection of the National Museum was transferred 11 times to different locations in the city, until it was finally exhibited in the adequate space.
Unfortunately, due to the unsatisfactory conditions in the building, the museum was at first closed for the public, while now it is undergoing reconstruction work. The final opening of the reconstructed building of the National Museum is still unknown.
