Welcome to Martime Museum

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.

Information & Facts

Square of Boka Marine 391, Kotor
EUR4 (Adults), EUR1 (Children)
Serbian (very similar to Croatian) is the official language of Montenegro, although Albanian is commonly used in some areas. English is widely understood in the capital, Podgorica, and in the coastal resorts.

The official currency is the Euro (EUR). Visitors entering Montenegro with more than EUR2,000 (including travellers cheques or the equivalent in another currency) should declare the amount on entry. Without declaration on entry large amounts may be confiscated on departure. Serbian Dinars are not accepted in Montenegro and should be exchanged for Euros. There are ATMs, which accept international bank cards in major cities and towns, and most of the larger hotels, shops and main restaurants accept Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard, but American Express cards are less welcome. Money can be exchanged at the numerous banks in the towns and cities.
