A museum without any ambition. Small collection. Many empty places. Old fashioned interior. Depressive look. Only the small artefacts looked well

Went in the evening & saw only 2 other visitors. The receptionist was very friendly & the indoor collection has lovely modern, clear presentation, with English summaries of periods: from prehistory through Greek, Roman & into Croatian periods; & translated info about the objects displayed:...More

This museum was a find, despite having to wait 1/2 hour for it to re-open at 2pm. A great collection of artifacts and history from the region, going back over 3,000 years, including some amazing coin collections. Highly recommend

The museum was quite old fashioned. It occupied an old, grand stone house with a tree-shaded courtyard. Inside, a long double gallery displayed ancient Greek and Roman pottery fragments, spear points, iron tools. The exhibit of ancient Greek glass was interesting, as were a couple...More

This place was amazing - lots to see, easy to walk around. We hadn’t heard of this place until my husband did a google search on the drive there. Reminded me of the ruins in Rome- less grand scale and less crowded.

A small and quiet museum, we were the only ones there on a weekday afternoon. Impressive collection, lots of Roman era items, but a room goes back to the Bronze age and to the Stone Age. I really wish they'd sell a English-language history book...More

A nice modest museum with lots of coins and a nice time line inside. Outside seems to be stone statues etc taken from Salona. Great for Roman or Greek enthusiasts less so for other interests. It is cool and not noisy so enjoy

There are a lot of sarcophagi, statues and plaques from roman times in the covered section outside, many well preserved and very interesting. I was surprised how small the museum was inside and although there were some fascinating pieces like the ancient coins I had...More
