This small museum takes up 4 floors and goes through the history of Budva through all its periods of occupation. I had no idea that the town was so ancient or that it had changed hands so many times! The top floor with its costumes and furniture is particularly nice, and the mosaic unearthed under a hotel is wonderful.
It's very worth the money and the time to learn a bit more. Everything is labelled in English, German, Russian and Italian.

Small museum spread over 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to a different era in the history of Budva. You can see lots of artefacts which were uncovered during the earthquake in the 70s. An inexpensive was to spend a couple of hours.

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.

Picture- taking is allowed here.

As the day was rainy it was a place to hide from the rain. The exhibition is poor and more focused on the ancient age. Very little was about the history of the specific town.

This museum was established in 1962 and housed prior excavation finds. But its biggest and most significant "contribution" (courtesy of the 1979 earthquake) was to provide the museum with a treasure trove of archeological finds (like 4,000) that eclipsed the earlier excavations.

This earthquake was a 7.0 monster.

Montenegro is a newbie by modern standards. It was in 2006 (16 short years ago) that it left Yugoslavia.

If you have time and some free Euros, (no credit cards, please) then do pay the museum a visit.

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.
