I visited one Saturday morning and was the only visitor there during that time. There are several hundred exhibits both inside and outside the building. Most of the artifacts inside the museum itself were translated into English and Croatian. Only a few of those in the courtyard outside were translated though. This left a feeling of wanting more of an... More

We were glad that the museum was open until 8pm because so many things in Split close relatively early in May, but we were disappointed that the museum was as small as it was- only one floor in a large building. The real exhibits were outside in the poorly lit area around the front garden- many wonderful Roman artifacts which... More

The archaeological museum is placed in a beautiful building not far from the city centre. Although not big there are many important artefacts from Salona and Spalato sites. Impressive collection of mosaic floors, sarcophagi and sculpture.

Interesting place, 30kn entrance and should have paid another 25kn for an extensive English guide to the key items. Reading a book on Mediterranean Sea and the contents helped provide additional context to what I was reading

Loaded with precious objects unearthed in the area surrounding Split, this museum is an easy walk from the old town. Somewhat limited hours so check before you go. We enjoyed wandering around the portico reading tombstones, looking at gorgeous mosaics, and admiring the sheer quantity of objects in this collection. The interior of the museum is stuffy and still, but... More

The museum is very high quality for its location and has a terrific collection of Roman artefacts including grave stelae and a high quality collection of coins. It is worth putting on the list of things to do.

Not a lot of written information. Mainly clothing and a few fishing implements displayed. Has a lift and toilets are good. Cost was 15KN.

We were very pleased with our visit to this museum. The exhibits were well laid out, identified in English and Croat and grouped together in a meaningful way. Definitely worth the walk from the old town

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.
