Fodor's Review

One of the oldest Croatian museums, it houses more than 20,000 Croatian archaeological artifacts, only a quarter of which are on display. The most interesting exhibits are fine stone carvings decorated with plaitwork designs, surprisingly similar to the geometric patterns typical of Celtic art. In the garden are several stećci, monolithic stone tombs dating back to the Bogomils. The museum also conducts archaeological excavations in the southern Croatian regions between the Cetina and Zrmanja rivers and has a large collection of cultural/historical guidebooks on early medieval monuments in Croatia.
