If you are interested in ancient glass this is a must see museum. Because so many of their finds were grave goods, the glass vessels are in pristine condition. This is a remarkable collection in a fine building. Sadly the day we were there no...More

My friend and I really liked this museum. It was neat to see such old pieces! Wow! We spent about an hour + 20 here looking around. Then we went to the top floor to watch the glass blowing demonstration. It is every 30 minutes...More

A very interesting museum with remains from Roman Empire. Impressive collection of various tools etc made by glass and with versatile usage. Worth a visit when the sun gets too hot!

The top floor was closed and no demonstrations were offered. Sufficient information in English. It is well displayed and quite informative. Didn't care much for the modern exhibit. Definitively a good hour spent here.

Small museum ,well displayed pieces. The glassblowing on the 3rd floor is very interesting with the artisan showing his skills and more.

By any means this museum is an excellent one for glass, it's just that it's glass. The exhibits are good and are all explained very well. Price for entry is not to expensive. It would be one of the better museums in Zadar.

This is a nice museum, not on scale with Corning Glass, but has some excellent pieces. A tad bit on the pricey side to get in, plus not allowed to take photos even without flash. The explanations are for the most part also available in...More

Regarding the exhibits, a key highlight for me was the reconstruction of the glass cremation pots in situ. The glass-blowing demonstration was quick, professional and in perfect English with a engaging and thorough demonstrator. Examples of blown-glass objects created in house are on sale in...More

An interesting museum with a nice modern layout and create presentation of exhibits. It's a small museum so it took us around 30minutes-1 hour to view. We were disappointed as demonstrations and workshops were advertised but when we asked about them the staff seemed clueless.

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
