UNIVERSEUM

The University of Belgrade is proud to present its academic heritage, housed in  museums and collections belonging to its faculties. During the meeting, visits will be organized to some of them.

Proposed visits to the heritage sites of the University of Belgrade:

Museum of Chemistry - Faculty of Chemistry
The Museum of Chemistry, also known as the Collection of the Greatest of the Serbian chemistry was officially opened on 21st October in 2002 at the Faculty of Chemistry. The occasion was a very unique anniversary –130 years since Simo Lozanic started teaching at the Cathedrae of Chemistry at the Great School (Later University of Belgrade).  
The Museum of Chemistry treasures original equipment of the very first chemical laboratory of the Belgrade Lyceum along with original documents and drafts from the earliest periods of academic courses in chemistry. There are also many other objects and entities documenting the origins and development of chemistry and chemical sciences in Serbia.

The Museum of minerals and rocks - Faculty of mining and geology

The Museum of minerals and rocks preserves and presents collections that were given to the Museum since its very beginning thus dating back to the Mineral Cabinet of the Great school of Serbia. Original archive materials are preserved as well, containing registries of mineral and rocks along with hand written etiquettes belonging to leading mineralogical museums and institutes of the world.
A significant segment of the very first mineralogical collection, given by Baron Von Herder to noble Prince Milos Obrenovic,  is kept in the Museum Among numerous collections, the one that stands out is the  collection given by the Petrograd Mining Institute of Catherine the Second, containing, according to the catalogue, 1484 samples of various geological treasures.

Museum of Sport - Faculty of sport and physical education

The Museum of Sport was founded in 1946 as a collection of objects and materials relating to the regional history of physical education and sport. The collection was created in order to serve students and researchers, to add to our knowledge of sport history and contribute to the academic courses in the field of history of PE and sports.. Today, we are still preserving and displaying the history of physical education in the academia, the history of sport-related sciences and history of sport in general. Our dual nature of being an university museum, documenting the history of sport sciences while serving as the only specialized museum of sport in the country,  is what makes us truly unique.
