About
It´s not easy to be The Town Museum in a Town that has been called "Museum Town" - in a town where every single stone, every street, every house... has its own secret story! But, when you decide to visit the Trogir Town Museum you will be able to see some of revealed secrets, you will be able to see what´s underneath those old stones, streets and houses. Trogir Town Museum cherishes the remains dating from the 3rd millennium BC to 20th century AD. And that is why the Town Museum is the best way to start exploring Trogir - town that has been continuously inhabited since the late bronze age.

Nice little museum. Kind of fun to see the water under the city and how the lived in the old days.
But the city is so full of history itself... so you don't have to visit the museum in order to see the "history"!

An interesting insight into the history of Trogir with clothes, furniture, a beautiful library, carved stones and a wonderful Roman bath. Well worth a visit. We were short on time and should have allowed longer perhaps an hour or two but easily nipped round in half an hour if you're short of time!

Trogir's Town Museum is the former Garagnin-Fanfogna palace a couple of blocks northeast of the main square. I found the museum underwhelming, in need of organization, and not up to the quality worthy of Trogir's rich history. The Garagnin-Fanfogna palace mixes Romanesque and Baroque styles of architecture, with a beautiful carved balcony over the main door. Permanent collections in the museum span the period from Trogir's founding to the 20th century. Unfortunately, they are not organized very well, and my purchased museum guide listed items, but didn't explain them. Museum signs and labels were in Croatian and English. There are three main parts: a collection of stone carvings (e.g., moldings, coats of arms) from ancient buildings; a gallery of works by modern Croatian painters and the main museum (a half-dozen furnished rooms with books, documents, paintings and period costumes). Regrettably, the famous Garagnin - Fanfogna library (founded in the 18th century) was not open to the public. I did not feel that the museum was worth the 25 kuna entry fee.

Just a random bunch of antiquities, the guide we purchased on the place was messy and didn't follow a logic order: was just a list of the things contained in the rooms. The two guys at the door are nice but can't help you and seem a bit out of place (and not so fluent in English). Isn't there any enthusiastic history student available to work there during the summer? I am sure a lot of British university students that would die to work in Trogir for the summer!

There could have been far more detailed material about the early history, apart from a few pots and the Greek pavement(?) most of the material was fairly late. It seemed to skip from 300 AD to 1400AD, Most of the material was post medieval.
The gallery was just that,a gallery of an artist's work

Lots of religious Statues and paintings from various eras. I think the oldest was from about 1500. Spread over two floors, it is easily manageable even when the temperature is soaring.

Objects and old books - some history of the various rulers over the centuries. All of them have labels in English. Worth a few hours on a hot day

Went on a rainy day, entry was 20 kuna. Stayed for 45-60 minutes, and learnt quite a lot about Trogir and its history. Some really cool old stone works
