Croatian Museum of Naive Art, Zagreb

(4.4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • This was a pleasant little detour on a cold day, a chance to look at some works I wouldn't otherwise find, and it opens your mind a bit to the Croatian art scene, past & present. 
  • The museum is compact and coherent. I liked it very much, although I am not sure I would have if I didn't know at least a little bit about Croatian Naive Art. 
  • We really didn;t know what to expect and were pleasantly susrprised. The art is most interesting. It is not a very big place but well worth a visit.

  • 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.
  • Small exhibit, and it's definitely unique pieces of art.
  • Very small, but still one of my favorite museums I've been to. A must in Zagreb.
  • Inspiring painters with childish eyes
  • little but really nice museum, go to see it! you will appreciate it!
