The night I visited the museum was the evening that all of the museums in Split were free to the public and this particular museum was busting at the seams. My customer and her family took me there. I was in a folkdance group in college so this was very interesting for me to see all the fold costumes.
When we went, there was an exhibit on the first floor on quilts made by local women. I thought I was in some Amish museum. These were not old quilts but just from a quilting club. They were very nice an impressive. I was more interested in the folk outfits from the different regions. My customer and her husband gave me some background on some of the outfits since several were from the villages where they grew up.
There was also glassware, jewelry, weapons, rugs and furniture. The craftsmanship was really exquisite.
The museum is in renovated building in the palace area. THere are 3 floors and the exhibits are spread out so things aren't squished together.
As I mentioned, it was a free night so there was just too many people to really enjoy and take time. I would recommend this museum to visitors who are interested in cultural objects from Croatia.
