The Malacological museum of Makarska is the most renowned museum of its kind in Croatia. The museum was founded in 1963 by Jure Radic, biologist, and Franciscan priest.

This unique and incredible establishment showcases numerous species of snails and shellfish from the Adriatic and the rest of the world. The museum began with the private collection of Jure Radic and later was embellished with the assistance of numerous donors, scholars and collectors.
