Pretty nice archaeological museum for the settlement and city of Budva. Particularly impressive was the 2500 year old Illyrian helmet! Not a huge collection, but some very solid finds from the classical era. The ubiquitous Balkan costume room is present as well.

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...More

This is a small museum but it does have some interesting items in it. Worth the 2 euros that we spent. There are 3 floors and a lot of steps to climb.

Small and very beautiful museum, exhibiting mostly objects from classical ages (pottery, glass, mosaics, metalwork). The top floor Is dedicated to more recent historical times. Not much of information about objects.

I think the entrance fee was 2 euro. It has 3 stores, each dedicated to items from one or more time periods. We actually found the explanations good enough but it would have been better if they offered a lecture. This was the place where...More

We were on a day trip to Montenegro and had a few hours to kill in Budva so we thought, why not go into this museum? I agree with other reviews that the pieces aren't explained very well and it kind of does just feel...More
