Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
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.

  • 5 rooms of esoteric primitive art. OK for a quick 30 minutes. No French masters here. There aren't any great museums in this city so relatively speaking it's as good as any. 
  • If you do, there are 5 rooms. A some of the colors are amazing. Photos without flash are allowed. It is a quick stop. 
  • Had no knowledge of naive art, naive art of Croatia seems to portray with oil paints from the other side of the glass. The painting was simple.

  • I thought this was a great museum. The artwork was very interesting and very impressive. Quite unique compared to museums I have seen in other cities. I really enjoyed it and it has given me a greater appreciation for outsider or naive art.
  • Very small, but still one of my favorite museums I've been to. A must in Zagreb.
  • little but really nice museum, go to see it! you will appreciate it!
  • Three small rooms with low quality pictures. It is not worth
