This is a great museum built around old ruins, but very modern inside. And air conditioned which was a blessing on a very hot summer day. The exhibits are first class and give insight into Croatian life. We especially loved the clothing exhibits.

Useful visit to help put Croatia into context. We spent about 45 mins on what was a fairly lightening trip, could probably have spent more. Especially enjoyed the section on children. Catching fish by torchlight was also interesting. Maybe the museum could create a section with more focus on local customs and traditions ie folklore

The museum hosts an extensive collection of historic and contemporary art, fashion, jewelry and curiosities. Count at least 2 hours to have a decent look around. The museum is airconditioned, so it's perfect to bridge the hottest hours around noon in summer. It's not usually overcrowded, so taking a calm look at the exhibits shouldn't be a problem. Can be...

You can learn about folklore of Chroatia. Very nice and well equipped museum. Worth a visit. Especially that the price for ticket is low.

Well worth a visit, quite a lot to see. The climb to the top of the vestibule should not be missed as you get excellent views of Split and the peristyle.

This museum paints a colourful picture of traditional culture in the area. It has a few different exhibitions, showing things such as clothes, paintings, and farming tools. The staff didn't seem very active, but you can easily take yourself around.

Alongside the City Museum and the Archeological Museum, this completes a good picture of the history and cultural life of the Dalmatia region. In this case it is the clothing of the islands (note the differences), the musical instruments and other artifacts. More interesting than expected. And don't forgot to climb the steps to the terrace for a wonderful view... More

This is a small museum. You can spend some time walking around and learning more about the Region. But the best part is the terrace. You can go up to the roof and take a lot of pictures. It is a small terrace but you see interesting places you wouldn't see otherwise.
