If anything this museum is an atlas of the 20th century's greatest tyrants, or at least the post-war variety. Here you can find all the gifts given to Tito by his friends over the years, and as you can guess his friends were all cut from a similar cloth. There are pistols from Saddam Hussein, gongs from Ne Win of Burma, Kris Knives from Suharto of Indonesia as well swords from Colonel Qaddafi, the Shah of Iran, and President Assad of Syria. The star of the show was, for me, the ferocious life size witch doctor costume, a gift from a Yugoslav community in Bolivia.
If you are going to visit the mausoleum, which you should, then you shouldn't miss this.
Take Bus 41 (starts at Studenski Trg) and get off at the first stop after the big motorway/highway. Keep walking up that street and you'll see a sign for the Garden of Flowers, or whatever nonsense the Serbs are calling it. Ignore that, it's for the cars. Just walk through the park on the left after the sign, up towards the big white house. Tito's mausoleum is around the left side of this.
