About Us

The Aeronatical Museum in Belgrade was founded with the desire to preserve material testimonies important for the origin and development of aviation in our region. In terms of the quality and quantity of its collections, in the past decades Aeronatical Museum has been ranked among the leading institutions of its kind in the world.

After the end of the First World War, in the newly created state, there was a growing awareness of the need to preserve aircraft and create an aviation collection. At the first aviation exhibition organized in Belgrade in 1925 the monoplane Blerio XI has been shown. This plane, that was captured at the airport in Mostar in 1918, will also occupy a place of honor at the First International Exhibition held in Belgrade in 1938 in the pavilion of the Yugoslav Air Force at the location of the Old Fairground.
