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.

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.
