Worth checking out. Old glass and I liked the jars people's ashes were kept in. Nice waterfront location and price was low.

Sorry, but this was possibly the greatest waste of time and 30 kuna in Zadar - unless you are super super super into glass. The only redeeming quality was the air-conditioning..

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 demonstrations were going on. If you have the time to get in touch with them before you leave on your trip and can find out which days the demos are taking place you can plan accordingly. The information was in English as well as in Croatian so you can easily understand what everything is.

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 from 9:00-2:00. It was really interesting and the glass blower is pretty adorable. He did great with kids that were there as well as the adults.
