There are so many stray and pet cats walking and living on the streets of Kotor old town that I fail to see the need for a cat museum. The best "museum" is out in the streets, where the cats entertain visitors, whether asking for...More

The cats museum is more of a gallery. You’ll find various photos, advertising media and artwork on cats through the ages. There’s a small amount of car paraphernalia such as medals but that’s about it. The museum is very small. There’s a gift shop here,...More

This quaint little museum celebrates all things feline. More importantly, the 1E entrance fee helps to provide food for all the cats who roam the streets of the old town of Kotor.
