I hesitate to give this museum a really negative review, as it is packed with interesting artifacts and information from an enormous span on history. It is clear that there are curators who care deeply about their holdings. On the other hand, I found it...More

Price worthy and good information. Went there in the nighttime witch is very recommended since you don’t have to deal with the rest of the crowd. Almost like a private museum.

Ignore the July 31 review, in my opinion. This museum provides excellent background and explanation for all of its pieces and periods. Perhaps that July 31 review just doesn't like to read.

Museum from the prehistoric period to the Roman period with many well-preserved finds. Divided over three floors. Not recommended if there are children under the age of 10 who might otherwise get bored.

Because this area of the world was occupied by so many empires, it’s archeological history is interesting. The Greeks, Romans, Venitians Euritians and many others passed along these shores and left their ancient mark on these lands. Entry fee is very reasonable and it was...More

This is a really well laid out museum in the very centre of the old city of Zadar. The roman artefacts are perhaps the most eye catching (especially the statue of Caesar) - but the pre roman exhibition on the top floor teaches visitors more...More
