My 2015 visit to Split (my forth) coincided with my third visit to the Archaeological Museum. As my visit was in May/June (Spring) some of the plants in the garden were only starting to flower and the other green areas were green and had not yet gone dull due to the heat. This little museum has a fantastic collection of... More

We saw some of the oldest coins we have ever seen at any museum we have ever traveled to.The collection of household items was impressive.I even saw hair rings,never actually seen one before.Well worth the visit.Was sad there wasnt more people here.Maybe because it was off season.It made an impression on us for sure.

We found this Museum to be most interesting, it houses some very fine Roman Artefacts which are housed in a large roofed courtyard. Worth a visit and not expensive either.

The garden of the museum is very beautiful, full of Ancient Roman statues, Egyptian sphinx, mozaics, amphoras.... and even inside you can see all kinds of... More

Tried to visit it during opening hours but we could not get in because none was there (the sign was there but the door was locked). Maybe call before you want to go.

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
