History of the Jadar Museum
The museological works were entrusted to the workers of the History Museum of Serbia, which provided permanent exhibition pieces. The association for culture of the municipality of Loznica has launched an initiative to form a founding board of the museum. The opening of the museum on September 14, 1987 marked the 2nd century since the birth of Vuk Karadzic.

Experts from the Jadar Museum and the History Museum of Serbia collected exhibits and filled the museum's fund. The office for religious education with the library was opened within the museum in 2002 and today has 980 members. Since 2013, a pedagogical department has been established, which cooperates with numerous pedagogical organizations and associations and very successfully organizes lectures, forums and classes of active teaching.
