Time Out Says

Housed in the renovated 19th-century Cosmacendi Palace, this is one of the best collections of ancient glassware outside Italy. The extensive collection had been retrieved from rich archaeological sites in Croatia (mostly from around Zadar), many of which have still to be fully excavated. Part of the display is given over to the history of the building including its conversion to a museum – but the focus is, of course, on the glass. There is also an absorbingly educational experience where you can learn how glass was made, watch glassblowing displays, and have a go at doing the same yourself.
