Best Museums and Galleries in Cetinje
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Montenegro team
To affirm and valorise Montenegrin contemporary art, the gallery is developing cooperation with other cultural institutions of a similar profile, where program orientations are regularly organised, such as solo and group exhibitions of Montenegrin and foreign artists, lectures, presentations, round tables, concerts, literary evenings, etc.
Museum of King Nikola in the residence of the last Montenegrin ruler Nikola I Petrovic Njegos, who left an indelible mark on the history of the country, as its ruler for more than 50 years. This construction became a museum in 1926, before which it used to be the house of King Danilo’s daughter Darinka.
The Ethnographic Museum of Montenegro was founded in 1951, and with over 4400 items, attests to the rich material and spiritual culture of Montenegro and its people. This museum was originally located in the Biljarda building with two other museums, the Njegoš Museum and the Museum of the National Liberation War (NOB) until the earthquake in 1979, after which it was transferred to the former Serbian embassy house.
The spirit of a warrior Montenegrin who had fought throughout centuries not only with harsh rocky terrain, bare soil, ground inaccessible to the enemy too and but for the defence of that same land from external forces alike, and this is best portrayed through chronology provided in the History Museum, in the Government building.
