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
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.
This kept my 6 yr old daughter entertained for an hour. There are lots of paintings of local sailors and shipowners. There are also a lot of detailed wooden and plastic models of famous local ships. The museum is in an old palace. I felt is was somewhat pricey.
The museum has a LOT of local historical maritime pieces, but it was a bit overwhelming after a while if you don't know much about the local area or families.
The Maritime Museum is a good place to learn about the inextricable links between the Boka and the town of Kotor. The museum covers two floors, and is filled with numerous artefacts and relics about Kotor’s maritime history. Quite an interesting place to visit if you have the time and interest in maritime history.
Hosted in the restored and adapted Grgurina Palace (once belonged to a noble family), the Maritime Museum tells the history of Kotor as a naval power and the successes of some of its famous seaman with a three floors journey through photographs, paintings and portraits, little models of old sail boats, navigational instruments, uniforms and weapons.
