The Museum In Cres is located in the "Arsan" building - the house in which the Renaissance philosopher and writer Frane Petric (Franciscus Patritious 1521 - 1567) was born.

There is as large collection of amphorae from the 2nd and 3rd century BC and collection of stone monuments on the ground floor. The first floor displays small archeological objects from various periods and a collection of books.

The Museum in Osor is located in the former Town Hall building. On the ground floor (loggia) there is a collection of stone monuments from the Roman, Old Christian and Middle Ages.

The collection of silver coins of the republic is valuable. Here also we find the model of the former and present day Osor which, picturesquely, enables us to stroll thorough the history of this once important insular town.
