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.

This was a pleasant surprise, there are some fascinating exhibits relating to Kotor in it's maritime heyday and to the noble seafaring families that made the city such a successful trading place. I particularly enjoyed the weapons room and the large amount of original contracts and paperwork relating to trade particularly with Venice.

Nicely set out on 2 floors with no lift. A history of sailing over the past 500 years. Models of ships, charts, artefacts, uniforms. The story of the fleet mutiny at the end of WW1. Lots of interesting and unexpected little details.

Visited from cruise September 2016. Not as much of a must see as the Cathedral, but still nice. Set on 2 floors, not a vast amount of artefacts or detail but certainly enough to quench an interest in those who are keen on maritime matters

Worth visiting to get a sense of what Kotor once was. Currently the town generates most of its income from tourism, but it wasn't always like this. This charming small museum is a reminder of a maritime history that goes back many centuries.

We visited this as part of a tour group. I did not find the place of great interest and felt that it missed the mark.

Small museum with free audio guide in English. Interesting collection of models of ships through the ages. National costume display.

Located in Bokassa Fleet Square and now the Maritime Museum, the Grgurina Palace has an interesting Baroque edifice dating from the 18th century. Outside there are two cannons representing the conflict between seaman and pirates. It's worth a look, even if you don't go into the museum.
