All of Serbia’s museums have their roots in the founding of the National Museum in Belgrade in 1844, when the idea to collect, safeguard and display museum materials which would illustrate the history of the Serbian people was turned into reality. In Serbia today there are around 100 museums, the majority of which are housed in buildings which are themselves protected cultural properties.
Galleries in Serbia are most commonly housed as part of other cultural institutions (museums, cultural centres and artistic associations) or represent independent projects by artistic groups or companies. In recent years there have been increasing numbers of modern multimedia galleries, with attractive displays by local and foreign applied and fine artists.
