It was interesting to see the capabilities that earlier civilizations had. They also offer a demonstration but the glass-blower hadn't shown up on the day I visited.

Worth checking out. Old glass and I liked the jars people's ashes were kept in. Nice waterfront location and price was low.

Sorry, but this was possibly the greatest waste of time and 30 kuna in Zadar - unless you are super super super into glass. The only redeeming quality was the air-conditioning..

My friend and I really liked this museum. It was neat to see such old pieces! Wow! We spent about an hour + 20 here looking around. Then we went to the top floor to watch the glass blowing demonstration. It is every 30 minutes...More

A very interesting museum with remains from Roman Empire. Impressive collection of various tools etc made by glass and with versatile usage. Worth a visit when the sun gets too hot!

The top floor was closed and no demonstrations were offered. Sufficient information in English. It is well displayed and quite informative. Didn't care much for the modern exhibit. Definitively a good hour spent here.

Small museum ,well displayed pieces. The glassblowing on the 3rd floor is very interesting with the artisan showing his skills and more.

By any means this museum is an excellent one for glass, it's just that it's glass. The exhibits are good and are all explained very well. Price for entry is not to expensive. It would be one of the better museums in Zadar.
