the ruins here are amazing!!! This museum was established in the 1800's and it has a great collection that has some great documentation of the finds made in the city. It is worth the visit. Closed from 12:00 - 16:00

You could spend one hour here or four. The museum is not huge, but it is well organized and extremely high quality. When we went it was not crowded at all. There was also a very friendly cat.

This gem of a museum was just a short distance from our hotel, but probably less than 20 minutes walk from the Old Town. So many items to see - from Roman and Greek hairpins to pots and sarcophagi. A modest entry charge and it's up to you how long you spend wandering around and looking at the fascinating exhibits!

I may be biased, but the collection here is fantastic. Even if you are not geeked out on Roman artefacts, there are wonderful everyday and household items to grab the attention of those with even the most mundane historical interests. Did you know that this museum is one of the oldest museum collections in Europe (dated to 1750)? The museum... More

The museum is clearly and logically laid out progressing from pre-history through Greek and Roman to early Middle Ages. Everything is marked in Croatian and English though some generic labels in pale brown on an off white background can be difficult to read if at the back of the case. The exhibits inside, though comprehensive are likely to be of... More

We visited the museum at 4.00pm, it's a little way from the main Palace Golden Gate entrance, but well worth the walk. It was packed to the rafters with a variety of large sculptures, tombstones and smaller artefacts found from different sites around the area. Most finds come from Salona, the site of the Roman City just outside Split, we... More

Great collection of artefacts spanning numerous periods, well worth the relatively short walk from the town. Signage in both Croatian and English giving you just enough detail to understand what you are seeing. Highly recommend for 1-1.5 hours as this gives you enough time to explore the small exhibition and grounds.

What a treasure trove of things to be found in the museum and a very large display of things outside of it too. 30 kuna/adult and well worth the money.

Not set within the Palace complex, so a little walk outside the old city walls (or a short taxi ride) this Museum is a real treat. Only one large room and two smaller rooms it is packed with artifacts from paleolithic times through to the end of the Roman era. No old musty feel, this is a museum which is... More

What a great museum. Terrific artifacts from many centuries ago. It is poorly promoted so not many people know about it. If you are into history this is worth a stop. It is very close to the old town so easy to walk to when you explore Split.
