Muzej Sergej Mašera in Piran

Sergej Mašera Museum in Piran, Slovenia

The Museum offers a collection of the maritime past of the Slovenian coast, Slovenian naval history and related economic activities. It includes an archaeological, a maritime, and an art-history collection. Besides that the museum informs about salt-making and fishing in the region.

I was especially impressed by a collection of paintings and ship models covering a span from galleys up to large sailing ships. During my visit I focused on Austrian-flagged ships as the region of Piran was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918.
