Croatian Museum of Naive Art, Zagreb

(480+ reviews on the web)
Art 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.

  • Contains painting of several artists of naive and weird paintings, worth seeing, and the ticket is not expensive as long as you are going on your own without any tour guide.  more »
  • I thoroughly enjoyed this small art gallery. The art is quite different and beautiful. I also bought my son a great T-shirt and mouse pad !!  more »
  • Probably not for everyone, but if you like folk art, this is a must see museum. Can be seen in less than an hour(plus it is air conditioned), this small museum is worth the small price of admission.  more »

  • 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!
