This museum was rather hard to find as we originally were directed to the Croatian museum by mistake! It’s based in an old-fashioned house, surrounded by a lush garden. We went in October and enjoyed sitting in the beautifully maintained garden. As others have noted,...More

10 minutes North West of the city walls. Absolutely worth the short stroll. A tremendous collection of antiquities from Palaeolithic axe heads to medieval bronze helmets with everything in between. We spent an hour fascinated by this museum and could have spent more time here....More
