Worth checking out. Old glass and I liked the jars people's ashes were kept in. Nice waterfront location and price was low.

Sorry, but this was possibly the greatest waste of time and 30 kuna in Zadar - unless you are super super super into glass. The only redeeming quality was the air-conditioning..

My friend and I really liked this museum. It was neat to see such old pieces! Wow! We spent about an hour + 20 here looking around. Then we went to the top floor to watch the glass blowing demonstration. It is every 30 minutes...More
