Photographer's Note

The Šibenik Museum was founded on December 20, 1925 on the occasion of the thousandth anniversary of the Croatian kingdom, and is located in the former Rector's Palace near the Cathedral.The Rector's Palace is part of the city's coastal defense system and was built in the 13th and 14th centuries. To this day, two wings of the once much larger building in which the highest representative of the state government in Šibenik - the city prince - the captain, have been preserved.
The south wing extends along the coast from a square to a polygonal tower. The square tower known as the Tower of the Prince's Palace is the largest defensive structure on the coast and dates from the 14th century. Between it and the Bishop's Palace, a 16th-century Renaissance city gate has been preserved. In the middle of the ground floor of the south wing of the Rector's Palace is a Gothic passage with the city gate over which is the city coat of arms with the image of St. Michael - the patron saint of the city.
The west wing of the Rector's Palace faces the sacristy and the apsidal parts of the Cathedral. At the southern end of this part are two doors of simple stone frames, and between them a niche with a baroque sculpture of the city prince Nikola Marcello.
In 1975, the adaptation of the Rector's Palace was completed and the modern functioning of the museum was made possible.
The Museum of the City of Šibenik is a museum of a complex type, and consists of an archeological, cultural-historical, a department of recent history and an ethnographic department. There is also a restoration and conservation workshop within the Museum. Its activity is the collection, preservation, processing and presentation of the cultural and historical heritage of the Šibenik region.
In its collections, it preserves numerous objects of museum value important for the study of Šibenik's past from the earliest times to the present day.
The entire holdings of the Museum are divided into collections: archeological department (prehistory, antiquity, middle ages and underwater), cultural-historical department and department of recent history (lapids, old masters, old graphics, weapons, old photographs, postcards, archives, gallery, collection rare editions, archives, cartographic, numismatic, jewelry, furniture, ceramics, everyday objects, liturgical objects, musical instruments). The total number of museums is about 150,000.
The Museum has achieved the most significant results in research, exhibition and publishing. Numerous archeological sites in the vicinity of Šibenik and the Šibenik aquatorium were explored, and over 300 exhibitions were organized, which were accompanied by exhibition catalogs. In addition, the Museum has published numerous editions that are extremely valuable for shedding light on the past of Krešimir's town, the oldest Croatian town on the Adriatic.
