“We want to show the continuity of living and habitation in the Sarajevo territory, from the Stone Age, Butmir’s culture, until the modern times, for which we also consider the period when BiH and Sarajevo were part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (in Bosnian: SHS),” Jerlagic stated.

The exhibition is divided into boards that are chronologically arranged, first referring to the Neolithic period, then the Illyrians period, the Roman Age, the Middle Ages, the Ottoman and the Austro-Hungarian period.
