Historical Museum Of Bosnia And Herzegovina - Review
Originally called the Museum of Revolution, the place has revised its priorities to trace the history of the country as a whole – from the coming of the first Slavs, the Ottoman rule, the Austro-Hungarian rule, right up to the present. That’s all in the downstairs exhibition though. It’s the upstairs, that’ll really fascinate though, with its focus on the four years of the Bosnian war and the impact it had on the people. The museum can be a harrowing experience – especially when going over the lives of the children during this conflict. All of this history is told through two permanent exhibits that host over 400000 items, in a building that’s till damaged – it’s as immersive as you could want.

Historical Museum Of Bosnia And Herzegovina, Sarajevo Reviews
Renovated recently. A ticket (we paid 5 marks) gives you access to the history museum (up to the 92-95 war), the natural history museum and the ethnographic museum. Well worth the price. Next door to the 1992-95 war museum (contemporary museum). It is a simple 25 minute walk from the old centre (and lets you enjoy the city and see the history), and is on the tram line and is a tour bus stop. The museum is open 10 to 2 at the weekend. Open 10 to 7 other days. It takes about 2 hours for a decent wander, those who just want to see it would take about 30 minutes. Other notable items nearby are the parliament, snipers alley (the main road) and the Holiday Hotel (yellow building) which was used by journalists and radio during the 92-95 war
Something for everyone! Some archeological displays, botanical gardens, ornithology, etc. A good place to spend part of a rainy day. Plan on 2 hours if you want to pause and read the display descriptions or less if you just want to look at the items. Unfortunately, despite the many “no smoking” signs, museum staff sit in offices smoking up a storm making some display areas almost intolerable at times. Plan on climbing a lot of stairs to see everything. I didn’t notice any lifts.
Unfortunately there are not many more great museums in Sarajevo. That alone is a strong reason to pay the visit to this monument of history and culture. Located near the central bus station and across the Holiday Inn hotel, it is easy to be found. Just a 100 meters is a famous Tito cafe. Collection of the museum is nowhere near as you probably saw in other major cities, but this temple of culture and history deserves to be seen while visiting Sarajevo.
A lot of old artifacts from the past, enjoyed looking at all of the old tools as well as the museum of natural hostory that is also on site. The canned beef monument is not far from here. It's not expensive and is a must see. Not far from Hotel Holiday(former Holiday Inn)
Great place to visit and enjoy. Specially botanical garden within the facility in the spring
