The top floor was closed and no demonstrations were offered. Sufficient information in English. It is well displayed and quite informative. Didn't care much for the modern exhibit. Definitively a good hour spent here.

Small museum ,well displayed pieces. The glassblowing on the 3rd floor is very interesting with the artisan showing his skills and more.

By any means this museum is an excellent one for glass, it's just that it's glass. The exhibits are good and are all explained very well. Price for entry is not to expensive. It would be one of the better museums in Zadar.

An interesting museum with a nice modern layout and create presentation of exhibits. It's a small museum so it took us around 30minutes-1 hour to view. We were disappointed as demonstrations and workshops were advertised but when we asked about them the staff seemed clueless.

This was a really interesting museum with lots of glass items from the 1st-3rd centuries and with good explanations in Croatian and English. The first floor was a bit lacking, but the second was the real highlight - especially the room with unique pieces. Definitely...More

Museum has some interesting exhibits that relate the history of glass in the Adriatic region (with multiple floors to check out), but there's also potential for it to be so much more dynamic. There's some good artwork and visuals along the walls to compliment the...More

This is housed in a fabulous building above the old city call and had spectacular views across the sea. This has an elevator so you can access all floors. Several school tours groups when we were there, all well behaved. Some of the exhibits we...More
