|About the museum:
Stari Grad Museum on Hvar is located in a neo-Renaissance palace from the end of the 19th century, the Biankini family house, hard by the Tvrdalj or fort of Petar Hektorović. In the ground floor of the museum there is a permanent marine archaeology display called Ancient Shipwrecks, and on the first floor the permanent archaeological display called Pharos – Stari Grad in Antiquity. On the second floor is the maritime collection, partially exhibited as the memorial Captain’s Room, and the Juraj Plančić Gallery, that has a permanent exhibition of the works of two Stari Grad painters of the first half of the 20th century – Juraj Plančić and Bartol Petrić. During the summer months the gallery organises exhibitions of contemporary art, and then the permanent display is taken down. In the neighbouring Trvrdalj the ethnographic collection is displayed, with a reconstructed traditional kitchen and cellar of the island of Hvar.
