I enjoyed the inside of the museum but especially enjoyed the sculptures scattered around the beautiful garden area. There are lots of cypress trees and a gorgeous view of the sea. It was a very serene and pleasant experience.

The history of this estate and gallery is wonderful. Knowing this was the artist's home is an added bonus to seeing all the great pieces throughout. The view from the front porch is amazing! It is an elegant and peaceful respite from touring.

A collection of artifacts and works of this Croation artist is worth seeing. There is also a video production of his life that adds to the experience.

Best way to get to the museum from the Rava/Promenade is to walk. It's about a 25 minute walk.
