In 1950, the Art Museum was established in Cetinje. Initially, the city library of Cetinje served as its location. Today it is located in the building of the former Government House along with the Historical Museum.
According to the latest data, the museum contains about three thousand exhibits, most of which ended up in its repositories at the end of the last century. These include ancient paintings and sculptures, as well as works by contemporary masters. Many of these masterpieces, including a collection of icons and paintings donated by the museum from Svetozar Tempo and his wife, are on permanent display in the museum.
The most valuable specimen of the Art Museum is considered to be the icon of the Filerma Mother of God, which was painted by the family Moscow painters Dmitrievich-Rafailovich, belonging to the Boka-Kotor school of icon painting. According to ancient legend, the apostle Luke was also directly related to the appearance of this icon. According to the Orthodox community, the icon of the Filermskaya Theotokos is miraculous.
The icon was for some time in the property of knightly orders, the royal house of the Romanovs (about 120 years, during which the icon's cover was changed from silver to gold), Ostrog monastery , and only in 1950 it became an exhibit of the Cetinje Art Museum and is now located in its blue hall.
