The Monastery houses an interesting museum with a rich ethnographic and sacral collections of artworks and valuable items, like archaeological exhibits from the surrounding area. In the convent library there are 76 Glagolitic manuscripts from the 17th and 18th century.
In the museum you can find a unique boat, made from a single large piece of wood (ladva) – one of only three preserved examples. There’s also a completely preserved convent’s “toš” (olive press) that dates from 1846.
