Art Museum · Museum
See an exhibit of 80 paintings, prints, and sculptures by self-taught Croatian and international artists at Croatian Museum of Naive Art. Between the 1930s and the 1980s, these works were produced mainly by peasants and working men who had created their own styles and achieved fame. This art movement thrives on freedom and creativity, but differs from amateur art due to its highly poetic nature. The museum's collection totals 1,850 pieces, which it exhibits in rotation. View these expressions of individualism, with the common themes of social events and gatherings, rural life and work, and the creations of untamed imagination.

  • Brilliant place to visit, a great insight into Croatian naive art and it's most famous protagonists... Many remarkable paintings that you need to see and appreciate at least once in your life! This is a small gallery but well worth the visit...
  • Great museum including stunning masterpieces of Gaźi, Večenaj and Kovačić. Strongly recommend
