About
Galerija Meštrović houses the masterpieces of Ivan Meštrović carved in marble, bronze and wood. The house was built based on Meštrović's design (1931 - 1939), and was intended to be his family summer residence, working studio and exhibition space. It is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden which, with its bronze sculptures and the view of the sea and of central Dalmatian islands makes a unique example of landscape architecture.

Very exciting and emotional experience.
Little Job is just wonderful!
I understand from expression of sculpture that he is Job,
even before I read title.
Polite staff member, who can give you good explanations.
Mestrovič is sculptor N1 for me.

Like a fairytale!
If you know at least something about this great artist, you will enjoy as a kid in Disneyland:) Take your time there, don't you hurry and finish with a coffee downstairs at the terrace with the most wonderfull view in Split.

Nice walk from the old town, decent gallery
Oct 2019
We had some time to kill so decided to take a walk to this gallery. Loved the fact that it was basically empty. The gallery itself was enjoyable. The walk from the old town was about 15-20 minutes each way.

Beautiful little gallery
Oct 2019
We walked out to Majellan Park and decided to visit the Gallery and Chapel. There are also a number of statues in the gardens.

They are both amazing places with some beautiful sculptures. It was very poignant to read his story and how his imprisonment during the war impacted on his work.

Unfortunately a number of the pieces are on loan at the moment - probably about a dozen of the smaller pieces and 4 or 5 of the larger ones.

We love sculpture galleries and this is definitely one worth visiting.

Busted the gallery. Beautiful grounds and sculptures. Some of the items are extremely large and you wonder how he did them.

Amazing sculptor
Sep 2019
Do not miss this gallery and nearby church with his large wooden bas-relief sculptures. I was no previously familiar with this artist, but was entranced by him. Do not miss the mausoleum he designed and built near Dubrovnik.

worth seeing

This gallery is located in a beautiful building with a lovely garden. It seams to be far away from the city, but it isn't. You can take a walk from Riva, it is about 20-25min.
