In one of the most beautiful streets in Knjaževac, in Njegoševa Street at number 6, is the Town Museum of Knjаževac - the house of Aca Stanojević. Bequeathed to the town, it was once the home of Aca Stanojević, Radical Party leader, close associate of Nikola Pašić, Speaker of the National Assembly of Serbia.

The house is a cultural monument. It was built in 1910 according to the architectural plans of building contractor Jovan Fogler from Vienna, in the style of Italian villas of Art Nouveau. Attractive wooden porch leads to the rooms in which you feel as if the time stopped at the end of the 19th century. Spacious lounge, study, clocks, vases, porcelain, all this resonates with warm poise.

Aca Stanojević’s personal items as well as many exhibits received from old families remind that Knjaževac is one of the oldest towns in Serbia.
