    Well Worth A Visit
    This museum located in the heart of the old walled Kotor is stuffed full of local history. The staff are terrific and the included "personal tour electronic devices" provide an easy and informative background on the numerous displays. Allow yourself at least a couple of hours to view all the stunning furniture, artwork, clothing, jewelry, models, weaponry, etc. on display. Enjoy.

    Small but interesting
    We visited this museum on a hot afternoon and enjoyed the chance to spend some time inside. It was very uncrowded; there was one tour group that entered about the same time, but as long as we avoided them we had the displays mostly to ourselves. We spent about 45 minutes in the museum. It has three floors but is pretty manageable; our entrance fee was not much (about €5) and included an audio guide which we enjoyed. It probably would have taken a couple hours to listen to all of it, so we focused on getting more information and context about items and displays we found most interesting. I don't think this is the most popular spot in Kotor, but we like maritime museums and found it well worth our time and money.

    Kotor’s maritime history at the ready!
    This is a great little museum smack in the middle of the Old Town. It’s readily identifiable by its dark green shutters and by the old anchor and cannon next to the entrance. It’s a 3-floor setup, with artefacts extremely well laid out and with info tags in both English and Montenegrin. Provides a very thorough history of Kotor’s maritime legacy. Lovely place to relax and soak up the ambience. Special compliments to the young woman on cashier duty (Monday, 18 December). Talk about a warm welcome! Admission: €6 Hours open: probably best to check these out on the museum’s website.

I love museums but I am not a huge fan of maritime museums. This however was really interesting. Small. Displayed over a few floors. Well explained. Simple and interesting without information overload. You don't need longer than thirty to forty five minutes at the most. Clean and well kept.

This museum is one of many we visited in montenegro and was by far the best. It was also the only one to have some kind of explanation as to what we were looking at really. They also provided a hand held gadget to listen to what each thing was, avaliable in different languages. This was very handy as all the other museums we went to we couldn't fully appreciate as we had no idea what we were looking at really! Definately worth a visit.

entru fee of 4 euro, it's located inside the old town, this museum will show you, through its three floors, many objects and weapon of the past, giving you an idea of the history of Kotor.

My favorite piece at the Maritime Museum was a bas relief sculpture of St. Tryphon, Kotor's patron saint, with the St. Mark's Lion, representing Venice. This sculpture reminds us that Kotor was part of the Venetian Empire for several centuries. In fact, the medieval walls built to protect old Kotor were erected during that time period.

The museum also held many paintings of the great naval heroes of Kotor, illustrating the sea battles and other maritime events that pepper Kotor's history. Another thing I enjoyed was the models of the boats and ships, some of which were quite large, with their fine woodwork.

You will not take much time out of your busy schedule in order to look round this little museum because...well, because it's only a little museum.

There are a few costume displays and some naval artefacts, but I found the model ships in glass cases to be the most interesting exhibits.

Since the whole of Kator ia aomething of a living museum, it doesn't seem to matter that this official collection is on the small side, because there is so much to wonder at outside the doors, and you will have probably felt that it was worth your time popping in.

We visited this museum as part of a walking tour. It was ok (and it was nice to get out of the heat/sun) but it is not a must-see if you have limited time. It is very small so doesn't take a long time to see.

Our Viking Cruise Tour guide was a local of Kotor , Montenegro. We toured the Maritime museum and learned of the fraternity of sailors , their traditional clothing, songs, celebrations . We also viewed silver and mother of pearl handled swords and guns.
The museum is a good place to learn of history & culture.

Entrance fee is 4 Euros per person. One gets an Audio device which can be used to explain the exhibits by pressing down the designated Exhibit numbers.

There are 3 floors of exhibits on displays ranging from replicas of famous ships, pictures of ship commanders, jewelries, maps, swords, guns, etc.

Highly recommended to visit!
