The Local Museum in Nova Varos, opened in 2012, as a department of The National Museum of Uzice has a great cultural and educational significance for the region of Nova Varos and Stari Vlah in General.
It is situated in the building of Turkish kaimakam, which until today has dominated the town and stood as an outstanding example of fusion of the traditional islamic architecture and Europian academic palaver. The institutions of the Turkish administration were located in this building.
Exhibited museum objects, documents, maps and photos of monuments (Roman, those from the Middle ages, Serbian, later Turkish) show that these regions have rich historical and cultural past.
Museum material covers the period from the Neolitic to the end of the twentieth century. Exhibited objects originate from archeological sites in the region of Stari Vlah. Some of them were given by donors as presents, while others were borrowed from other museum collections.
