Busted the gallery. Beautiful grounds and sculptures. Some of the items are extremely large and you wonder how he did them. more »
Unsure if tickets are required by we walked in just like many others did before us. The place has some nice statues and great photo opportunities. We never entered the actual museum but the vibe was friendly and relaxed. It is a bit small and not alot to see
Astonishing! Definitely a place you should visit! One of the most talented and prolific Croatian artist's home turned into this huge, very well organized museum near the seashore. It was wonderful (re)living Mestrovic's most crucial moments and emotions through his beautiful sculptures guided by the well written museum broucher. Not much of a fan of sculptures in general due to being hard to make them expressive, this guy's work made me fall in love with it.
