We knew nothing of Ivan Mešrović at all. We learned that Rodan thought he was the greatest sculptor of all time. And we learnt it in the most beautiful of surroundings. Mešrović is stunning - we have been on a high all day after this...More

The gallery was one of the first places we went to in Split. It's not a large facility but you might still want to set aside some time to stop and appreciate each piece. There are metal and stone sculptures on the grounds and inside....More

Really worth a visit as the Sculptures are fantastic. It would be worth reading up a little online before you go as there is not much information in the gallery. It is a nice cool oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle of Split....More

The gallery with works by a greatest Croatian sculptor is a must see - the one who exhibited even in such circles as Vienna Secession. And when there, visit nearby Kastelet too

Great spot just a bit away from downtown, so completely uncrowded. Amazing bronzes and plaster castings. And what a seaside view!

This was the home of Ivan Mestrovic, the foermost Croatian sculptor and was intended by him as a museum, with wonderful wood sculptures,bronzes, drawings, sculptures outside in the garden, and one of the most stunning views in Split of the Adriatic. Unique.

The location is wonderful and the exhibits are beautiful and beautifully displayed. The curators are really knowledgeable and Mestrovic's story is an interesting one. We went at 6pm so we had an hour before closing but it was enough and there weren't many people there....More
