Situated in one of the most beautiful residential areas of Belgrade, the Museum of African Art is the only museum in the country dedicated entirely to the culture and arts of the African continent.

After many years of accumulating pieces of art throughout West Africa, Veda and dr Zdravko Pečar formed an extraordinary collection, which they donated to the City of Belgrade. Under patronage of the local authorities, the Museum of African Art was established in 1977.The museum building was specialy constructed to host the Pečar collection, and is designed so as to blend into the surrounding environment.
The museum exhibits are sorted into subcollections by material and geographic criteria. They belong to artistic traditions of the Bamana, Dogon, Kissi, Baga, Marka, Malinka, Bobo, Dan, Gere, Gouro, Senufo, Ashanti, Ewe, Baule, Fon, Yoruba, Bamileke. Aside from numerous masks and wooden sculptures, considered as classic examples of west African art, the permanent display comprises other objects for cult and everyday use, magical or decorative purpose in wood, bronze, ceramics, soapstone, textile etc.
