Notable objects, original and copies from the National Museum of Belgrade form an exhibition that is presented in the first floor of the Duchess of Plaisance building, and is divided into four thematic units.
On display are minor art objects (11th-14th c.), double-sided icons and Sanctuary doors and also wall-painting copies.
These copies reproduce wall-paintings from important medieval monuments of Serbia, i.e. from the monasteries of Μileševa, Sopoćani, Studenica, Gračanica and elsewhere, which reflect the values of the Byzantine artistic tradition.
