Long Description:
The museum is located in south Jajce, on the right bank of the Pliva.

The construction of the building began in 1932 and ended in 1934.Destroyed by the Partizans in 1942, was later rebuilt to host the historical AVNOJ Session. Upon the order of the Supreme Headquarters the building was reconstructed by architect Ziva Djordjevic.

On November 29 and 30, 1943, 142 councilors participated in the Second AVNOJ Session, which was held in this building. The representatives of BiH, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Slovenia gave up on a part of their sovereignty to create a federation. The following document was passed at the session: Decision to create Federal Republic of Yugoslavia whose peoples will have equal rights, thus ending the process of creation of Yugoslavia’s state authorities. Given the major historical value of the building, the building was reconstructed again in 1947 and 1953. Some elements of the reconstruction remained visible to date.

The Museum of the Second AVNOJ Session was founded in 1953 as a central, Yugoslavian, museum and memorial institution.

The first permanent Museum collection, which was later revised, was opened to public on February 18, 1959.
