The museum contains various items belonging to King Nickola and his large family - 9 daughters and 3 sons ! The exhibition is interesting though quite limited. The building is basic for a palace.

Is not a palace as you will imagine from the name, but it was the residence of Montenegro king. Now transformed in a museum it depicts the life at that times. Not very big but interesting to worth a visit.

This is a very small museum and the word palace does not seem quite appropriate. However, it is still worth a visit and the history of Montenegro is very interesting.

While billled as King Nicola's Palace, it is really a large home. It has now been converted into a musuem. Cetinje was once the capital of Montenegro. Some of the various foreign embassy offices/homes still exist. Enjoy.
