Croatian Museum of Naive Art, Zagreb

#2 of 22 in Museums in Zagreb
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.

  • The exhibition, I liked even though I was a little disappointed thinking find 1500 works that feature but 80 is exposed. Even so, it seemed to me to be charming, with colourful paintings that are not nothing naïve but that speak of terrible stories, some of them

  • In the old town is this museum. Just a stairs and you're there. The number of paintings is limited, but there are several gems. Of our favourites 2 bought t-shirts. 12.50 Euro per piece.

  • This was a delightful museum with a good overview and selection of Naïve Art, particularly given its size. Staff did not manage the space well on the day of our visit, with groups of noisy guests distracting from the artwork. Good value all the same.
  • Entrance fee is worth. Impressive colour. Simple-looking, yet elaborate patterns.
  • It's a great one! Impressed by the colours and the perspective some creations offered. The entrance fee is very symbolic, definitely worth it!
  • 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.

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
