Bosnia's biggest and best-endowed museum of ancient and natural history is housed in an impressive, purpose-built quadrangle of neoclassical 1913 buildings. It's best known for housing the priceless Sarajevo Haggadah but there's much more to see. Highlights include Illyrian and Roman carvings, Frankish-style medieval swords, beautifully preserved 19th-century room interiors and meteorites among the extensive cabinets full of geological samples. Many explanatory panels have English translations.

The museum's pinned insects and howling stuffed wolf won't appeal to all tastes but there's an exceptional collection of medieval stećci (carved Bosnian grave slabs). There's a pretty little botanical garden off the central courtyard. Many more examples sit outside the museum's roadside frontage, visible for free even when the building is closed.
