The Šibenik City Museum
Located in the former Prince’s Palace, it was founded on December 20, 1925 to celebrate the thousand-year anniversary of the Kingdom of Croatia. The Prince’s Palace dates from the 13th – 14th century. It is known for its rectangular tower, the largest coastal defence facility. It also features a Gothic passage with the city’s door, on which the city’s coat of arms can be found with an image of its patron, St. Michael. There is also a Baroque sculpture of the city’s prince, Nicola Marcella. The Šibenik City Museum consists of archaeological, cultural-historic and ethnographic departments. Its duties consist of collecting, taking care of, elaborating and presenting the cultural-historical heritage of the Šibenik region. Its collections consist of a number of valuable items significant for the study of Šibenik’s history, from the oldest times until present days. The museum also keeps musical instruments, old photographs and postcards, a coin collection, liturgical objects, jewellery, furniture and more.
