This is located in a building close to the arena and by the twin gates, and Roman theater. It was a very nice museum that held a great deal of stone artifacts dating back to the 3 century BC. It features many Illyrian and Liberun cultures of those times. They also have a large coin collection, antique glass artworks, metal and stone worked displays used in daily life, to name a few. The museum began in 1902 and expanded as more archaeological digs in Istria were made.
The entry is $4, or 20 kuna, and you would spend maybe 2-3 hours for slow viewing. It is located on Carrarina Ulica
