Municipal Museum

East Kvarner Coast

The local museum, housed in a Gothic-Renaissance 15th-century palace built by Senj's medieval first family, the Vukasovićs, is a mixed bag of local history from the past 2000 years. The most interesting sections for Slavophiles are the exhibition dealing with the erstwhile printing house that produced religious texts in the Glagolitic script and the ethnographic section with its colourful folk costumes.
