The Basics

Explore the 1930s villa, which holds works by the sculptor who's often compared to Rodin. Meštrović's religious art comprises much of the gallery's permanent exhibits, and there are hundreds of sculptures, drawings, paintings, architectural plans, and two furniture sets on display. Don't miss the garden, which holds some of the artist's best pieces. For a comprehensive view of Split, visit Meštrović Gallery on a tour—by foot, hop-on hop-off bus, or bicycle—of the city's top attractions.

When to Get There

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday with shorter hours in winter. The greater Split area is a popular tourist destination in summer. The best time to visit Marjan is September and October when tourist crowds have gone, but the Adriatic Sea is still warm enough for a swim.

Don’t Miss The Guest House

Entrance to Meštrović Gallery includes access to entire property as well as the 16th-century summer house of the noble Capogrosso family, Kaštelet. Meštrović remodeled the villa in 1939 to showcase for his Life of Christ cycle reliefs. Particularly notable are the room-sized wood carvings, which line the house’s Holy Cross Chapel.
