the museum of MAN AND EARTH
S A R A J E V O ,  B O S N I A  A N D  H E R Z E G O V I N A



The Museum of Man and Earth, the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was founded in 1888 and is the oldest among the modern cultural and scientific institutions of Western type in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Since the very beginning of its work, the National Museum has developed as a complex cultural and scientific institution nourishing a number of scientific and scholarly disciplines, i.e. history, geography, archeology (prehistoric, ancient and medieval), ethnology, history of art and natural history (biology, geology and mineralogy), partly language, literature, statistics and bibliography.

Owing to numerous donations and its employees, the Museum gradually recovers from the devastation of the war. Help for rehabilitation of this cultural institution was provided by the Institute for Protection of Cultural, Historical and Natural Heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina, UNESCO, Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport, Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport of the Canton of Sarajevo, Institute for Planning and Construction of the City of Sarajevo, International Center for Peace in Sarajevo, Swiss museums, Swiss ICOM and Swiss National Museum in Zurich, BHHR, Norks Folkesmuseum from Oslo, Foundation for Cultural Heritage without Borders from Sweden, Museum of Natural History, Museum of Ethnography, Museum of Islamic Art and other Swedish museums, as well as many others.

Thank you.

The Museum of Man and Earth covers every era of the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, from the pre-Historic Age:



To the Ancient era:



To the Middle Ages era, which includes the Museum's most famous treasures: Bosniak Stecci Tombstones. These tombstones are found nowhere else in the world and, as a unique symbol of the Bosniak people, have come to be recognized as a unique symbol of Bosnia and Herzegovina:



The Museum also covers the natural history of Bosnia and Herzegovina:



As well as the ethnic history of Bosniaks, from the Bogumil era to the Islamic times:
