The Novigrad Collection of Stone Monuments is a registered and catalogued collection of the Archeological Museum of Istria in Pula and is a protected cultural monument. The collection consists of stone monuments from the Antique, the early and late Middle Ages, the main exhibit being the stone fragments of the hexagonal ciborium of Bishop Mauro from 780. 


The main building of this valuable stone collection is planned to be built in the very core of Novigrad, inside the block formed by the local church on the south, new housing on the west, the Rigo Palace and existing housing on the east and a recently built house to the north.
