  • We took the #12 bus up from the marina which was around $4 for 2 people. It has a 10:15 which is perfect time to spend 1-2 hours in the gallery. Lovely villa with 2 floors and lawn gallery for the bro...  more »
  • The sculptures are exquisite, but the house, to me, was even better. The dining room is particularly stunning.  more »
  • It is a 30 minute walk to the gallery but it is worth the visit. The city has a number of artworks of Mestrovic - none greater than at the Gold Door, so visiting the gallery opened up many more pieces...  more »

  • 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
