Overview
More
Cats Museum was founded in 2013. It is located in the middle of the Old town of Kotor, in the area of the antique monastery of Our lady of Angels, which belonged to the nuns of Santa Clara. This area, currently open to the public, used to be an antique refectory, unfortunately unrecognizable due to numerous reconstructions which followed after the abolition of the religious community. The biggest part of the Museum's collection comes from Venice, more precisely from the fund of the International Centre for Adopting Cats "Badoer" enriched by the substantial donation from countess Francesca Montereale di Mantica. The exhibition contains engravings (XVI-XIX c), antique books (XVI-XIX c), coins, medals (XIX -XX c), illustrated postcards (1891-1950), greeting cards, old photographs, cinematographic posters, sheet music, records, old advertisements, various objects, stamps, etc. One big section is dedicated to the Cat exhibitions before the First World War as well as to the children through the most common school items: notebooks, infant books, etc. The museum's goal is that, through the cat as the most common pet, the public gets a message of respect for the environment and the nature, each day more and more threatened by men. On request, The Museum organizes traveling exhibitions in various European countries and within its possibilities constantly buys pieces that can enrich its collection. Furthermore, the museum is available to host exhibitions featuring the works of contemporary artists who are interested to organize their art events in Kotor. A certain percentage from its income is spent on buying food for the street cats.

Two small rooms, but packed with tons of cat-themed stuff. Postcards, engravings, stamps, medals, paintings, photographs. It’s historical and also highly entertaining. You can wander through in 15 minutes if you don’t really like cats, or alternatively do the 2-hour crazy cat lady visit I...More

We went to the cat museum when the weather was grey. Interesting items, mostly pictures of cats. The entrance fee was only one euro for adults and fifty cents (not the rapper) for kids.

Was looking for attractions around Kotor and found that the car museum was worth a trip, especially only for €1 each. Mostly just art but definitely worth the trip

This quirky little museum is in Kotor old town. A must for cat lovers. All their profits go towards feeding the many stray cats in the town. The owner was a very nice man who gave me a present of a 2019 cat calendar. I...More

The port is in front of the old city. Entering through the Great Door is entered in the main square of the city. In this square, you see the old clock tower. Behind the Clock Tower is the Cat Museum.
