Amazing museum for a very low price. We only paid 3 euros per person for the ticket and it is worth so much more! Might not look like much from the outside but inside the museum spans over 4 floors and presents a large variety of local archaeological finds. Good way to get acquainted with the local history.

Budva Museum is situated in the Old City, away from the noise of the new town beaches and is certainly worth a visit.

Interesting mosaics and wonderful old clothes. Also a far-fetched but thoroughly entertaining story of the founding of Budva (no plot spoilers, but there was a lot of murder and mayhem involved).

The Old City is far and away the nicest part of Budva, and you shoukd add the museum to your itinerary when you're there.

Although the Budva Old Town Museum is located in a small building, you can see here nice archeological and ethnographic exhibits. In the ground floor of the museum there is a lapidary.

I think ceramic lovers will be most pleased here. A lot of vases, bowls, plates, all kinds of clay dishes are displayed here. Some of these exhibits date back to the Hellenistic period (5th century BC). The jewelry collection is also beautiful.

The entrance fee to the museum is €3.

The original museum was opened with limited artifacts in 1962. Then something actually good resulted from the huge 1979 earthquake. Exceptionally valuable and rich discoveries were made during archeological excavations resulting in 4,000 finds and the need for a solid, real museum.

Nowadays, the small museum contains ethnographic and archaeological collections. The objects cover vast periods of Budva’s history including Illyrian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Slavic. There’s an impressive collection of Greek and Roman jewellery, ceramics, mosaics and glassware (how it survived in a town so prone to earthquakes and war is anyone’s guess), as well as a 5th-century-BC helmet with holes in the back, which suggest that the former owner had at least one very bad day.

The Archaeological Museum is located within the walls of old town of Budva. Here there are permanent exhibitions of archaeological and ethnographic collections. The archaeological collection displays for public artifacts (gold jewelry, tools, weapons, cutlery, glass and clay objects, funeral stones …) typical for Greek, Roman, Byzantine or Slav culture. The ethnographic collection displays mostly traditional clothing, household objects and furniture from the region, dated in the last couple of centuries.
The visiting hours are: 8am to 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, closed on Monday.
For me the museum was a good opportunity to find out a little bit more about the history of the town and region.

I was the only guest during my visit. The guy who accepted my entrance fee kept talking to me in his native language. Had no idea what he was talking about!

On display at the 3 floors of this museum are some artifacts such as coins, urns, pots, jewelries, traditional clothing, etc.

It's not a huge museum, and doesn't take hours to do it justice. A few of the exhibits were memorable - the Trojan helmet, the collection of Roman glass, and the Roman jewellery. Worth looking in.

I would highly recommend coming here. It was empty but I enjoyed it. You need maybe thirty to forty minutes at the most. Spread over a few floors but very small. Simple and informative.

As you’re exploring the Old Town, stop by their museum for an hour or so. Interesting interpretation of local history going back 2000 years or so.

The price to go in was only €2/person and wasn't too bad. The artifacts were pretty cool, with some old daggers and cool peices of clothing.
