Dedicated to Croatian religious art from between the 7th and 12th centuries, this museum displays some charming stone carvings taken from early churches and decorated with plait-work motifs, reminiscent of Celtic art. Outside, in front of the museum, stand several stečci, stone tombstones attributed to the Bogomils, a curious religious sect that was popular in the Balkans in the 10th century, most notably in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The museum is about a 15-minute walk along the coast west of the Old Town, also accessible by bus 12.
