On Saturday, 23 April, the National Museum in Belgrade will have a ‘Family Day’, with the aim of bringing the treasures of the National Museum closer to all visitors through learning, being entertained and socialising with the curators.
Throughout Saturday, from 12:00 to 20:00, children will have the opportunity to learn about 18th and 19th century fashion with their parents, make their own version of a moustache similar to those in famous portraits, learn what “tepeluk” is, decorate them and then take them home.
At the workshop starting at 1 p.m. titled “If I Were a Ruler for a Day”, which is suitable for children aged 7 to 10, with the help of the curator of the National Museum, children will peek into the world of 19th-century Serbian rulers presented in the exhibition “How We Remember Our Rulers”. They will also be able to watch a play about the Obrenović royal family at the Graphic Cabinet of the National Museum and then together they will bring the world from the past to life by designing their costumes.
Guided tours will take place from noon to 5 p.m. covering the museum departments that feature exhibits from the 18th and 19th centuries, and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., the visitors will enjoy interactive musical content thanks to Milan Kovacević’s gusle.
The museum also announces a concert of European and Serbian music from the first half of the 19th century titled “The Spring of Romanticism”, which will be performed by soprano Kristina Askovic, violinist Ljubica Damcevic and pianist Tea Dimitrijevic.
