A friend had recommended that we visit this museum when in Zagreb. The works of art were painted by farmers who had no formal training as artists. Many of their paintings are of landscapes and scenes of farm life. They are quite fascinating and beautiful....More

First of all, naive art refers to art made by untrained artists (which I have always heard referred to as outsider art). This museum, though small, features some absolutely fantastic examples of Croatian outsider art. I loved it. The space is quite small so they...More

The Croatian Museum of Naive Art is a small, but interesting museum. It displays a variety of art from artists with no formal art training. It also has a very small gift shop.

Only went in as it is one of few museums open on Mondays in Zagreb. Small and uninteresting and on first floor.

What a cool little museum dedicated to predominantly Croatian artists of Naive Art. As it is small museum, your visit will be short. We really enjoyed it and the tour given by the museum expert. Highly recommend a visit.

Not to be missed if you are an art lover or not. These pieces are meant to speak to the non-artist. Paintings and scupltures speak from the heart and soul. No pomp here.

Really enjoyed the "docent" who gave a fantastic explanation of the type of Naive Art. Great view of the local artists. Not too much but a great sampling.
