The Military Museum (Serbian: Војни музеј, romanized: Vojni muzej) is a museum located in Belgrade, Serbia. Founded in 1878, the museum has over 3,000 ancient and modern items. These include Roman swords and helmets, Greek helmets and daggers, Serbian heavy knight's armor, axes, shields, helmets, crossbows, armoured gloves, as well as Western medieval weapons. There are also more modern guns, firearms, and elements of soldier's uniforms and equipment. Dioramas, plaques, and displays illustrate the use and historical context of the museum's collection.
Inside the museum's main building, the exhibits are found in a single long hall progressing from ancient through medieval and then towards modern. All exhibits are labeled in the Serbian Language in both Cyrillic and Latin, as well as English. Outside the museum's main building, there are numerous tanks, howitzers, and armoured cars of many types. Some were acquired during World War II, when they were captured by the Red Army and Yugoslav Partisans from retreating Nazi and Axis forces (Belgrade Offensive). These decommissioned tanks and artillery pieces line the walls and paths leading into the Military Museum from two directions. Recent exhibits address NATO actions against Serbia in 1999, including the controversial use of cluster bombs, depleted uranium, and graphite bombs, some of which are claimed to be in violation of international law. A well-known exhibit features parts of a US F-117 stealth aircraft which was downed by a Serbian S-125 Neva/Pechora.

Definitely, a must see attraction in Belgrade. The exhibition is well organized and easy to follow, although many items are the same.

In a region where peace does not last longer than 40 years, the Military Museum is the best place to learn Serbian history. Do not miss it.

One of Belgrade's most visited and important museums. It is a great establishment for learning about the Serbian history in general, where you will have the opportunity to see how this nation's military advancements, dating back to the Roman times, and all the way to the Modern History of the 20th Century. The museum has an abundance of different military artifacts, which makes it extremely interesting if you are visiting with kids. Furthermore, there is a large "Military park" right in front of the Museum, which features real life scale replicas of various military weapons and vehicles. This is one of the most interesting areas for kids in the entire Kalemegdan area. The park, unlike the main museum is free of charge, but don't worry, the entrance price for the main museum is only 200 RSD, or 1.70 eur.

Extensive collection of historical artifacts. Most text is in Serbian meaning you have to do a lot of guessing if you don't speak the language. Comprehensive coverage of WWII and Tito. Yugoslavian war covered only in one room with no information.

All the good stuff isn't even inside the museum building, but rather on display in the vicinity.
