One guesses the best pieces found in the area are i ZAgreb, however the setting of the museum is quite wonderful, and the exhibition quite interesting.

We were very impressed by this museum and all of its artifacts. That, and the museum's employees were extremely knowledgable.

An easy 10 minute walk from the centre of Split, this museum is housed in a large mansion. The size of the building is deceiving as the exhibits only take up the ground floor. These priceless relics are neatly organised into periods of history from the Bronze Age to the arrival of the Slavs in the 7th century. Greek and... More

We walked from the harbor up to the museum. Very nice walk, and museum. Wish there was a tour so we'd have gotten more out of it. If you haven't been to Greece, Turkey and Naples, this is a must see.

If you love history this is the museum for you. This is a wealth of fantastic Roman artifacts, and beautiful collection of Roman glass. Split was a major center of glass production during the roman years and if you are lucky you might find a piece while swimming!

This museum is a short walk out of the main town - easy to find if you are prepared to walk about a mile. The museum has artefacts both inside and out.

The museum isn't huge but it's collection is amazing. It's well organised into different periods so it's easy to see different types of itsm from the same time. In particular there roman glass, coin, enamelled jewellery and inscribed monuments housed outdoors under cover all mostly local from Salona are exceptional.

Many large museums are overwhelming, too much stuff. This museum in Split was organized by era and easy to get a real sense of the history of the area over thousands of years. I think it would be a great place to bring a child ready to understand the progress of the human race from the stone age. The mostly... More

Helps me to understand the past, gives a human face to ancestors. The jewelry stands the test of time-it is still beautiful. There is a lot of captioning in English, but not everything. The icons are in a room that looks like a private meeting room, but isn't.
