It was founded in 1937, its name then being the Gyptotheque, its aim being to present plaster casts of the immoveable monuments of the Croatian cultural heritage. Today, the Glyptotheque keeps the largest collection of sculptures in Croatia, both plaster casts and original works of Croatian sculpturists from the 14th to the 20th century. When the Gyptotheque became a constituent part of the Croatian Academy of Science and Art, it was renamed Glyptotheque, and has turned into a sculpture museum in which creative works of sculpture from antiquity until the present time can be seen. Today, the Glyptotheque has a floor area of more than 14,000 square metres. The Croatian Academy Glyptotheque is a member of ICOM, UNESCO’s International Committee for Museums.
