The Archaeological Museum in Zadar produces souvenirs and replicas that are mostly copies of archaeological material.
The workshop for restoration and souvenir production began to be developed in 1963, with the arrival of Božidar Vilhar, the conservator of the Archaeological Museum in Zadar, who greatly advanced the workshop with the installation of an electric kiln for firing pottery, and introduced rubber moulds for making plaster casts. Today, along with the other conservation workshops, the workshop for restoration and souvenir production is located in the complex of the former monastery of St. Nicholas. According to the needs of the museum, the workshop carries out protection of archaeological material, along with the cleaning, gluing and restoration of pottery objects. In addition to the restoration of artifacts, the museum also produces souvenirs and replicas that are mostly copies of archaeological material. The workshop possesses almost a hundred varied objects in the form of copies and souvenirs made of pottery and artificial stone. Photo:
