Handpicked by a Montenegro Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Museums and Galleries to Visit in Montenegro'.


Not too many countries have the satisfaction of having such a cultural-historically rich legacy on such a small territory as Montenegro does. Not only it preserves its long history from oblivion but it also works on the development and recognition of its cultural and historical heritage in a contemporary way. As the main institution that promotes the culture of Montenegro is the National Museum of Montenegro, which exists since 1950. Montenegro museums are a complex cultural institution that consists of different museums, and several art galleries. Here are some of the best ones, you shouldn’t miss when visiting Montenegro. 

Now, thanks to the Campaign 'Zivimo Kulturu #ostanidoma', which the Ministry of Culture is implementing, intending to offer cultural and artistic content to the citizens of Montenegro in the period of social isolation, due to the outbreak of COVID19, it is possible to visit the settings of four museum units that function within the National Museum of Montenegro. These are the King Nikola Museum, the Art Museum, the History Museum and Njegoš's Biljarda.
