This is a wonderful little museum run by the Benedictine nuns of the adjacent convent. It has very limited opening hours, but it's right off the forum and across from the bell tower. The nuns who serve as your tour guides are helpful, kind and...More

Tours run by nuns who provide commentary in English. Some very old and fascinating gold and silver items, as well and wooden carvings, paintings and embroidery. No photos.

This is one of Zadar's must-sees. Officially called "The gold and silver of Zadar", it houses an enormous collection of religious art. If you are interested in that sort of thing, you can easily spend up to 3 hours in it. Absolutely worth the while.

After a while all the crucifixes, reliquaries and celebratory garments start to blur. I appreciate the richness and variety of the collection but it was simply too much for my taste. Worth the visit nevertheless. Everything but exhibition about Glagolitic alphabet has description in English....More

This quietly understated museum in the Benedictine Convent adjacent to the Forum is hardly mentioned in the major guide books, but for lovers of religious art (and even for those who just love beautiful things) this is an absolute must see. Had we not listened...More

Mentioned on our walking tour by our guide and I'm glad we went back to look. Some amazing gold and silver treasures. We were told the nuns hid the treasures underground during world war II bombings and refused to let them be taken. No photos...More

Wow! I'm so glad I read a short blurb about this permanent exhibition and planned a visit accordingly. It was truly spectacular to see this huge accumulation of opulently-adorned church relics. My children couldn't believe how much wealth was to be found in a small...More
