The period of Austro-Hungarian rule in Bosnia is characterized by a new modern administration, followed by industrialization and traffic development, architecture that made Bosnia one of the Central European states, and Sarajevo, a city that by no means lagged behind Prague or Vienna. In addition to economic development and industrialization, traditional crafts have been preserved in such a way that workshops for so-called art crafts have been established. The first power plants were built and electrical network was completed.

During this period, a new culture of living applies, so many singing societies, driving societies, and women's societies were founded. All social changes that occured can be seen at the exhibition of this museum.
Among the most interesting sections of this Museum are the natural size dolls of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophia.
