History Museum

Museum in Cetinje

Housed in the imposing former parliament building (1910), this fascinating museum follows a timeline from the Stone Age to 1955. There are few English signs but the enthusiastic staff will give you an overview. Bullet holes are a theme of some of the most interesting relics: there are three in the back of the tunic that Prince Danilo was wearing when assassinated; Prince Nikola’s standard from the battle of Vučji Do has 396; while, in the communist section, there’s a big gaping one in the skull of a fallen comrade.
