Perast is a very small town and this has to be one of the highlights. Very nicely appointed museum set in the old house/mansion/palace of a Montenegrin sea captain. Exceptional collection for such a small establishment and very friendly staff who wont hesitate to answer questions about the pieces. The view from the balcony out over the two islands in... More

We enjoyed our visit to Perast museum. It was amplified enormously by the young woman staffer who offered to guide us through it and explain everything. Interesting collection of artefacts, part of the complex history of this part of the world.
