Boats on river in Fisherman’s Museum near Senses Resort

Fisherman’s Museum

The centuries-old tradition of fishing on the coasts of Hvar has become an integral part of the island's history and the identity of its inhabitants. The Fishermen's Museum in Vrboska, an heir of this tradition, offers its visitors an insight into the historical development of this important economic practice. Located in Vrboska, a settlement founded during the 15th and 16th centuries by fishermen who were mainly hunting for small pelagic species, the Fishermen's Museum displays authentic objects mostly acquired from the local population.
