More than 200,000 exhibits of exceptional value have been distributed in 23 museum collections, with the desire to revive the story of a country that no longer exists.
The Museum of Yugoslav History was founded in 1996 by a decree of the Government of Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, which established that the Old Museum, the House of Flowers and the Museum of May 25, documentary and art material of the Museum of Revolution and the Memorial Center were entrusted to its management.
Museum of May 25th, has a role today of the entrance and exit of the complex, and it was built as a gift from Belgrade to Tito for his 70th birthday. The old museum originally served as a place where the presents that Tito received in the country and abroad will be kept and exhibited.
The house of flowers was built in 1975 as a winter garden with rooms for work and rest in the central part of the complex, and he was buried in it on a personal request.
Broz's grave can still be visited today in the House of Flowers, with a marble plaque on which there are no features other than the carved name, surname and party pseudonym"Tito" under which he became famous.
The permanent exhibition in the Old Museum includes an exhibition of gifts that Josip Broz Tito received for his birthday or for numerous travels in the country and abroad. The exhibition consists of two parts: objects from the territory of Yugoslavia and gifts of foreign delegations, statesmen and officials.
Among them, the stone from the Moon, which was a gift of three-member crew of the Apollo 11 mission to Tito, when they visited Belgrade in 1969.
The Museum of Yugoslav History is one of the most visited in Serbia throughout the year. On average on May 25, there are between 2,000 and 3,000 people visiting it.
However, the majority of visitors are on May 4 and 25, when people from the former SFRY come and pay tribute to Josip Broz Tito, the life president of this country, while 80 percent of visitors from the west come in the course of the year.
Tourists can visit numerous tourist attractions related to Josip Broz Tito in the cities of former Yugoslavia, among them Tito's bunker in Konjic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tito's hometown of Kumrovec in Croatia, Marshal Tito Square and many other destinations.
