The museum really brings to life the strategic importance of Kotor as a port, and the wealth of the early merchants. The display of beautiful weaponry (the bling of the day) was really surprising and impressive.

If you are interested in maritime history, this little museum is definitely worth visiting. It is mostly about the local maritime history and history of Montenegro and therefore something you cannot see anywhere else, although the items are of course mostly typically maritime museum material. Tickets 4 €, include audio phone.

Not the largest naval museum we have been to but good value at 4 euros entrance fee. Built over 3 floors it has some great exhibits from their maritime history. Audio guides are available from reception in many languages. If model ships are your thing it's the place for you.

Exhibits are over 2 floors, lots of model ships from all eras. Also swords and guns from the 16th to 19th centuries, local costumes and funnily enough a replica of a terra cotta warrior from Xian!

Has some good stuff in here if you're into war and guns. It's cheap & nice to see some culture. Doesn't take much time and is quite small.

Not too large. Enough info and exhibits to be interesting without getting too boring. Worth a visit.

From ancient history to modern times. Tools devices and artifacts illustrated the history of the Montegro history is told. Stunning relief s three dimensional charts even a terracotta warrior inresidence.

We were lucky, there was only one cruise ship in town, but even so, the Maritime Museum, worth a visit, was crowded with one group after another. The museum tells a great story about the history of trade that made Kotor a happening place, and has some truly lovely pieces of history on display. But get there early, before the... More

Nothing special in my opinion. Some nice old artefacts. Clothes and weapons are all shown here. History is interesting but it's all a bit average for me.
