What people are saying:

Kotor develops and grows by the cause of navigation. The history of Kotor is closely connected with the sea. Although the maritime museum is very compact, this three-story building contains all the essence and is worth visiting. The building itself is an important historical monument. It is the official residence of the Grgurina family who lived here, and it is exactly the same as the Italian architectural style on the other side of the Adriatic Sea. Collections began in 1880 and opened to the public in 1900. The open area on the first floor is not large. There are sculptures and some maps displayed. What is new is that there is a model of a terracotta warrior. From the stairs on the second floor, there are many cultural relics oncoming. There are nautical instruments, ship models, maps, anchors, guns, portraits of famous people, uniforms, restored models of historical scenes, paintings, etc. There are also photos in modern times. Basically, they are arranged in chronological order. From the Apennines in the Middle Ages to Austria, Russia, and Yugoslavia in modern times, the history of Kotor is basically outlined by describing the history of navigation. There is an exhibition hall showing the heroic deeds that took place in Kotor during World War I and World War II, as well as the story of the warship named after Kotor, and an exhibition hall showing Kotor’s unique maritime culture: selected from 12-year-old boys The little admiral symbolizes that the maritime tradition has been passed down from generation to generation; there is also a respected person as the real Kotor admiral, and now it has become part of the Kotor culture and tourism exhibition.

    We loved that anchor!

    This building used to be an old palace, and it got our attention because of the large anchor at the entrance.

    Small museum - not a must-see

    We visited this museum as part of a walking tour. It was ok (and it was nice to get out of the heat/sun) but it is not a must-see if you have limited time. It is very small so doesn't take a long ti...
