National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina

 Since the very beginning of its work, the National Museum has developed as a complex cultural and scientific institution nourishing a number of scientific and scholarly disciplines, i.e. history, geography, archeology (prehistoric, ancient and medieval), ethnology, history of art and natural history (biology, geology and mineralogy), partly language, literature, statistics and bibliography. Studies of these disciplines have with time taken the shape of the three present departments, namely the Department of Archeology, Department of Ethnology and Department of Natural History. A lot of attention has always, since the beginning of work, been given to the educational and culturological function of the Museum. Museological activities have also created a basis for acquiring of all the existing collections through research work in the field, purchase, exchange or gifts to the Museum
