Although the sea, beach and sun prevent most of the thoughts about history, archeology, museums (and spending time in them)… the Archeological Museum in Budva is worthy of spending one afternoon off the beach. At least.

Museum offers journey through Budva history, from 5th century BC – when Budva, settled by Illyrian tribe of Enchelei, was mentioned for the first time as Buthoe, by ancient writer Sophocles – to 19th century.

The oldest exhibit in Museum is Illyrian bronze helmet dated in 5th century BC. There are several ceramic vases and vessels from Hellenistic period (4th – 2nd century BC), Roman pottery and glass, tombstones and urns (1st – 3rd century AD)… There are impressive pieces of silver, gold and amber jewelry, found in Budva necropolis and made in period 3rd – 1st century BC… This, archeological collection, is exhibited on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor of the Museum.

There are parts of the naval equipment, traditional costumes, furniture, arms… (19th century) at the exhibition of ethnological and cultural heritage of Budva, on the 4th floor of the Museum.

Address: Stari Grad, Petra I Petrovica 11
Directions: The Archeological Museum is in the Old Town of Budva, at the corner of Petra I Petrovica and Ivana Crnojevica, very near the Second Pizana Door.
