Stories from the Museum – TV series

Watch episodes 1-6

Nine exclusive, half-hour episodes inspired by artefacts from the collection at the National Museum in Kragujevac. The camera takes us to where the artefacts were originally discovered and with the assistance of the museum curators we learn about their context and significance. They tell the history of Kragujevac and central Serbia, including many unknown or little known details. Before you are the six episodes completed so far.
