The Ethnographic Museum of Montenegro was founded in 1951 in Cetinje. It is located in the same square as King Nikola's Palace and the Biljarda.
The museum was originally located in the Biljarda. In 1979, after the devastating earthquake in Montenegro, material from the Ethnographic Museum was relocated from the Bilijarda to the Vladin Dom building. Since 1987 the Ethnographic Museum has been housed in the former Serbian embassy building in Cetinje and organisation of museum exhibits is under way. The Ethnographic Museum has 4,125 exhibits that represent different production manners, ways of life, textile crafts, folk costumes, musical instruments and other elements of the material and spiritual culture of the population of Montenegro.
