The Museum of African Art

The Museum of African Art is the first and only museum in the region which is specifically dedicated to African cultures and art. The permanent exhibition contains important works of West African art, and is made up of selected objects from the initial collection that was created by the Museum’s founders, Veda and Zdravko Pečar, PhD.

The majority of items in the exhibition are masks and sculptures that are considered a classic expression of West African art and were integral parts of religious and other social rituals. The exhibition also contains other cultural, magical, decorative and practical objects made of wood and ceramics; in addition, the Museum boasts figurines done in soft stone and a representative collection of fabrics and musical instruments
