Fritzi Gallery - Museum of Lošinj

In the first half of the 19th century the first city administration building – Municipio was built on the site of today's Fritzi Palace. At the end of the 19th century the building was thoroughly restored and adapted into a historical palace with recognizable line of quadrifoliate windows on the main façade. On the first floor the craftsmen from Lošinj redecorated the representative great hall with a gallery. Carved symbols of particular crafts can be seen on the balustrade of the gallery. At the beginning of the 20th  century, the palace functions as Fritzi Guesthouse from which the palace got its name. After the Second World War the Palace was a home of a Public Institution (later under the name Adult Education Centre of Mali Lošinj) finally to become the seat of the newly founded Lošinj Museum in 2007.

Museum of Apoxyomenos

The Museum of Apoxyomenos is a unique archaeological and architectural cultural institution in our region and it is entirely dedicated to only one exhibit – the bronze statue of a young athlete, the Apoxyomenos. The statue was discovered in 1997 by a Belgian tourist at the depth of 45 m. In 1999, it was taken out of the sea where it spent nearly two millennia.

The Archaeological Collection Osor - Museum of Lošinj

The collection was opened to public in 1889 and since then it has been housed in the building of the former City Hall and loggia. It is a Renaissance building from the first half of the 15th century. Other public buildings in the main square, the Bishop’s Palace and the Cathedral, date from the same period. The building was protected as a monument of culture in 1964. 
The Lapidarium is situated inside a spacious loggia, together with the ancient stone fragments, Medieval wicker ornaments and the Renaissance spolias. The items predominantly from the period of the Early Roman Empire are displayed on the first floor of the City Hall.
