  • It's next to the big green hill, this is guy who made statues with the shine toe in center. Some very interesting sculptures, before entering on the right is huge one: one eye man.  more »
  • From the top of the stairs and balcony offers a view on the sea. In the garden's sculptures, and during spring, summer and autumn is open bar-nice. The Interior of the Museum on two floors-the beautifully illuminated. Take the time to see. See movie of Meštrovićevom life and creation. Comfortable and quiet. Sundays/through morning concerts. Accompany Museum facebook page for schedule of workshops for children-painting different techniques, creating in clay and lecture and tour.

  • The gardens outside are lush green. Some of the sculptures are really impressive. I suggest getting transport to it from split since it is a good 30 min walk. The ticket price is 40 hrk per adult. Washrooms are available. 4 stars because I'm not a fan of either sculptures or the artist but for a fan of his work this gallery would be astounding.
  • Beautiful gallery showcasing the work of Croatia's most important sculptor. Bring your own guidebook as no audioguide is available. Grounds are lovely, includes admission to chapel. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting gallery. Meštrović is on of the greatest Croatian sculptors. Worth visiting! Surroundings are lovely as well, nice part of city for a calm walk. When you buy the entry ticket for the gallery, entry to crkvine Kaštilac is also included (small church across the road approximately 200 m away)
  • Magnificent museum overlooking the sea. Mestrovics sculptures in all their glory. Very peaceful time walking round, inside and in the gardens.
  • Beautiful grounds and very emotional sculptures. Definitely worth a quick visit! Only 20 kuna with student discount
