This museum is, as I've been told, quite unique. You'll see a multitude of beautiful, nicely arranged, ancient glass objects and learn a lot of the history of glass. You can also see glass objects being made by skilled glass blowers. If you have a...More

This was a really interesting museum with lots of glass items from the 1st-3rd centuries and with good explanations in Croatian and English. The first floor was a bit lacking, but the second was the real highlight - especially the room with unique pieces. Definitely...More

Museum has some interesting exhibits that relate the history of glass in the Adriatic region (with multiple floors to check out), but there's also potential for it to be so much more dynamic. There's some good artwork and visuals along the walls to compliment the...More

Glass has a special place in antiquity and in the arcaeological record. Most is from grave contexts so the museum gives some insight into the variety and extent of local communities. well explained even if some of the items' provenance is a bit doubtful
