The City Museum of Novalja was founded in 2004, and since 2019 it has been part of the Cultural Center of the City of Novalja. The Museum's holdings consist of material of distinct cultural-historical and artistic value with about a thousand objects created in the period from antiquity to the new century. It is systematized in eight collections: archaeological, ethnographic, numismatic, collection of books, documents, postcards, photographs and art collection. Yet the museum’s biggest attraction is the underground Roman aqueduct that can be seen from the basement. The permanent exhibition is designed in such a way that visitors, after having the opportunity to peek into this unique Roman architectural endeavor, continue with a tour of the archaeological collection located in the basement of the museum. On the ground floor, there is a 3D animation of the waterworks, which in the most vivid way depicts the waterworks in its original edition. This is followed by the first floor, which is intended for exhibitions, and the second floor, which is ambientally designed, and presents the ethnographic heritage of the town of Novalja, especially through the middle and half of the 20th century. The museum's holdings are constantly enriched with finds from research in the wider Novalja area. Most of these are finds from the archeological site of Caska, the hydroarchaeological site of Vlaška mala, the urban part of the town of Novalja, but also the wider area of ​​the island of Pag. The main mission of the museum is to acquaint the local population and visitors from other parts with the rich archeological and other history of the Novalja area, through the collection, protection, processing and presentation of materials
