  • We did not know anything about Mestrovic before visiting the gallery and a church down the street ( with his wood carvings) and were simply amazed by his sculptures. Also, it is a beautiful walk to th...  more »
  • 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.

  • Amazing works in a great location. My only criticism is that many sculptures are mounted on plinths that are too high, many have their faces turned upwards and without being able to look down on them, you miss seeing some incredible work. Short and medium people, take something to stand on 😊
  • Nice setting. Grounds could do with a tidy up, but its on e hell of a house! Particularly liked the sculptures of Job.
  • Mestrovic granted this gallery to the city. Definitely worth the visit. Also go to the chapel that is included, you wouldn't be disappointed.
  • Nice quiet place. Beautiful architechture and sculptures. Nice view of the sea. Not expensive. You can walk there in 40 min from center Split.
  • Lovely house and view. Interesting sculptures but lacking explanatory detail. We found more about the artist's life from Wiki than the museum. Not alot for your money.
