Museums of Sarajevo: Vijećnica Museum

Vijećnica Museum is located in the basement of Vijećnica, a building that is not only one of the most recognizable symbols of BiH''''s capital city, but also a world symbol of the meeting of civilizations.


While Vijećnica was undergoing reconstruction, plans were made to include a space for the installation of a permanent exhibit about the building’s original construction, its incineration and renovation, as well as the major events that this building has witnessed during its turbulent history.


The permanent exhibit is still in the process of being completed so, in the meantime, visitors can take a look at the exhibit, "Sarajevo City Hall Revisited”, by Nedžad Mulaomerović. The exhibit tells the story of Vijećnica’s reconstruction, which took nearly two decades to complete.


Another exhibit on display is, "Sarajevo 1914-2014”, which has been done in cooperation with the JU Museum of Sarajevo and tells the story of Sarajevo over the past 100 years, including the story of one of its most important symbols – Vijećnica.
