Info: The museum is famous for its interior decoration, ornaments on the walls and furniture. Some argue that this is maybe the nicest house interior in Belgrade. And that's pretty unexpected judging by the classical and calm looks of its exterior. This is one of very few houses in Belgrade urban area that still has its own proper yard. And there is still a so called "summer kitchen" out there. Inside, on display you can see numerous maps, handwritings, paintings, photographs, books, and other personal belongings.
