Worth the visit and go to know Croatia's most noted artists. He was also the scuptor of the city's Grgur Ninski statue right in the centre of town. It is the largest collections of his work to-date.

The sculptures are exquisite, but the house, to me, was even better. The dining room is particularly stunning.

Amazing gallery, not to miss in Split. Short ride by car. Also, a very beautiful beach down the hill below!

Ivan Mestrovic is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and this gallery is proof. Located in the Mestrovic family’s summer house, the rooms, halls and gardens are strewn with his artwork. Sensational artwork, sensational gallery.

The gallery is a 15-30 minute walk from the West side of the Riva, or you can take a quick and cheap cab ride up the hill. The gallery is Metrovic's former home: it's a gorgeous villa with STUNNING views of the sea. The garden...More

The beautiful architecture of the gallery, that once was the artists home, exhibits important and impactful works of Mestrovic. Don´t miss the little Church at some distance of the main gallery, where another of his facets may be admired.

This museum is an amazing collection of sculpture of Ivan Meštrović, (1883-1962), with most of the works created between 1908 and 1948. The museum guide highlights the best 15 of them and all are exquisite. He sculpted in marble, bronze and wood primarily. My favorites...More

Best way to get to the museum from the Rava/Promenade is to walk. It's about a 25 minute walk.
