Lonely Planet review
Bosnia's biggest and best endowed museum closed in October 2012 due to persistent funding problems. Ironically it had been a rare institution to have remained at least partly functioning throughout the siege era, and its impressive 1913 quadrangle of neo-classical 1913 buildings survived reasonably intact. Assuming it re-opens, the greatest highlights are its Illyrian and Roman carvings and especially the world-famous Sarajevo Haggadah , a 14th-century Jewish codex said to be worth a billion US dollars. Geraldine Brooks' 2007 historical novel People of the Book is a part-fictionalised account of how the Nazis failed to grab it during WWII.
Outside at the front are some exceptional medieval stećci (carved grave slabs).
