Museum of Childhood explores, systematizes and interprets the memorabilia of childhood (packaging, toys, literature, clothing, photographs, etc., mostly found at flea markets), which are primarily related to the socio-cultural space of Yugoslavia, but which also have an universal value, understandable without knowledge of historical and cultural connotation. Museum of Childhood explores the complex concept of childhood and related categories such as memory, identity, individual and collective narratives, using the museological and anthropological approach, combined with a specific author's approach, embodied in his passion for collecting and interpretation imbued with his own personal, artistic and critical reflection on childhood and related objects.
