Martime Museum

Kotor's Maritime Museum is one of the most popular cultural sights in Montenegro, and an extremely worthwhile place to visit for travellers of all ages. Housed in a stately Baroque palace that used to belong to the noble Grgurina family, the Maritime Museum proudly displays artefacts and documents chronicling Kotor's rich naval heritage. A well-run and ably financed operation, the exhibitions at the Maritime Museum are filled with some truly beautiful pieces that will capture the imagination of young and old visitors, 'sea-dogs' and 'land-lubbers' alike. In addition to bronze reliefs, old portraits, ancient maps and aquarelles, there are also antique navigational instruments and models of old galleys and sailboats on display, as well as a poignant collection of bottles that, presumably, once carried messages from sailors back to shore.

Address: Square of Boka Marine 391, Kotor
