Buća-Luković Museum & Gallery

Museum in Tivat

Aristocratic families from Perast, Dobrota and Kotor once built their summer residences at Tivat to take advantage of its sunnier outlook. One of the few survivors is this 500-year-old fortified enclosure with its own Catholic chapel, which once belonged to Kotor's Buća family.

The solid stone defensive tower houses a collection of Roman bits and bobs; next door is a well-presented ethnographical museum with fishing and farming artefacts. Head upstairs for beautiful jewellery and folk costumes. The gallery focuses on modern painting and sculpture and often hosts exhibitions.
