Museum of Yugoslav History
Description

The Museum of Yugoslav History (MYH), preserves, researches and interprets the cultural heritage of the former country of Yugoslavia. It was founded in 1996, as a result of a merger between the Memorial Centre Josip Broz Tito and the Museum of the Revolution of Yugoslav Nations and Ethnic Minorities. In 2013, it was declared an institution of national  significance.

The Museum of Yugoslav History complex consists of three venues that used to be part of the Memorial Centre Josip Broz Tito: the Museum “May 25th (venue hosting theme-oriented exhibitions), the House of Flowers (Venue hosting a permanent exhibition and the site where Josip Broz Tito  and Jovanka Broz are buried) and the Old Museum (venue hosting a permanent exhibition).  

Venues are situated on the grounds of the official residence of Josip Broz Tito (1892 - 1980), lifelong president of Yugoslavia, leader of the Communist Party, the Anti-Fascist Movement and the Non-Aligned Movement.  Тhe park surrounding the Museum of Yugoslav History is adorned with sculptures, most of which were part of the original setting of the park of the official residence of the president of Yugoslavia. The sculptures were made by prominent Yugoslav sculptors and are mostly gifts given to Josip Broz Tito.

The largest part of the museum’s collections is comprised of the gifts that Josip Broz received from other statesmen, prominent citizens and peoples living in the country that he led.
