Remodeled secured room housing the Haggadah now open

A remodeled room at the National Museum of BiH, which houses one of its most valuable pieces, the original Sarajevo Haggadah, is now open.


This section of the museum also contains other valuable items: a decree issued by King Stefan Tvrtko to Commander Hrvoje Vukčić (Moštre, March 12, 1380); a decree from King Stefan Dabiša to his daughter, Stana (Sutjeska, April 26, 1395); a decree from King Stefan Tomaš to the sons of Ivanac Jurčinić (Jezero, February 19, 1459); a large two-sided seal used by Bosnian kings; remains of brocade fabric found in the grave of King Stefan Tvrtko (Mile, near Visoko, from the last quarter of the 14th century); fragments from the tombstone at the grave of the unidentified Bosnian king (Bobovac, late 14th/early 15th century); remains of Mirko Radojević's funeral shroud (Kopošići, near Ilijaš, ca 1405).

The secure room that contains the original Sarajevo Haggadah is open to the public during museum working hours, but the Haggadah is only on display on Tuesday, Thursday and the first Saturday of every month, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
