The Croatian Museum of Naive Art is a fine art museum in the capital city of Croatia, Zagreb. The museum was established in 1952 and is dedicated to Naive Art, hosting over 1900 pieces of art, which include paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. The Museum mainly displays work of Croatian artists from the Naive genre of art but has a collection of international pieces. The museum is believed to be the first dedicated to Naive Art dating back to its opening in 1952. It's now become a hub for Naive Art and the museum works with local schools displaying their pupil's art whilst trying to increase the number of youngsters interested in visiting museums.
