Galerija Meštrović houses the masterpieces of Ivan Meštrović carved in marble, bronze and wood. The house was built based on Meštrović's design (1931 - 1939), and was intended to be his family summer residence, working studio and exhibition space. It is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden which, with its bronze sculptures and the view of the sea and of central Dalmatian islands makes a unique example of landscape architecture.

If you like sculpture, don't miss this lovely museum, and visit the chapel just down the road too. Sorry we didn't have time to travel to the mausoleum where Mestrovic is buried as well.
