Map / Location

This tiny museum, located in the old town, is only dedicated to Naive Art, a movement really popular for Croatian Artists.

The story began in 1952, when the Peasant Art Gallery was founded in Zagreb. The establishment was dedicated to naive art and the collections became the world’s first museum of naive art

The collection are displayed according to the maxim: Naive Art as a Segment of Modern Art. Visitors can discover some eighty anthology-piece paintings and sculptures from Croatian naive artists, from the early thirties to the 1980s.

The focus is of the celebrated Hlebine School, and a few of the more highly-valued independent artists. In conjunction with their works, artworks of significant artists of other nations are also on exhibit.
