Museum Month is a manifestation that has been taking place at the Historical Museum of BiH for the past three years. It is always held during the month of November, the same month that the museum was first founded and opened to the public.
This year’s program is dedicated to cultural-historical heritage, advancing museum practices and enhancing an awareness of the importance of museums in BiH society.
Museum Month Program:
As part of Museum Month 2018, the public will have an opportunity to view exhibits at the Historical Museum of BiH for free every Monday (2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
Every Tuesday (starting at 10:00 a.m.), high school students will have a chance to learn about historical events that occurred in 1918 by participating in debates and “The Historic Eights – 1918” workshops.
During Museum Month, every Wednesday is reserved for school visits.
The Jasenovac Memorial Museum talks about the tens of thousands who were killed at Jasenovac concentration camp between 1941 and 1945. There were 152 workers from the Main Railroad Workshop in Sarajevo who were among those killed. Đorđe Mihovilović has curated the exhibit, which will run for seven days.
November 21, 2018 – Pre-premiere of the documentary film, Do You Remember Šamac-Sarajevo?
Alema Kazazić’s film was shot while attending events that marked the 40th anniversary of the construction of the second gauge of the Šamac-Sarajevo railway line.
This exhibit includes the most representative documents, photographs, manuscripts and books that were bequeathed to the museum as part of Šefik Bešlagić’s legacy. The collection also includes items donated by Besim Spahić and Mladen Miloradović. The exhibit will run for seven days.
“Reconciliations 2” continues the story of how the arts play a role in coming to terms with the past. In addition to works from BiH, which have been inspired by the Historical Museum’s permanent exhibit, “Besieged Sarajevo,” there will also be works by regional and international artists. The exhibit will run for two weeks.
