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.

Croatian Museum of Naive Art reviews
A small museum but well worth a visit. The pictures and sculptures are of high quality. Some of them are very moving and thought provoking.

A small, yet extremely well-curated selection of naive / primitive art. The displays rotate regularly. Mostly paintings yet also sculptures and a few fabric pieces m. ❤️ this musuem!
small museum with about 4 rooms but absolutely worth it! lots of beautiful art, much of it from Croatian artists. i must say though, if the paintings here are naïve, then i must be a terrible artist 😂 descriptions in english and Croatian
