A well laid out museum that gives interesting insights into various aspects of traditional life in Croatia. It also has a terrace above the vestibule that is well worth visiting for the view too.

This museum might be overlooked by many, but it's a great view into some traditional elements of Dalmatian culture. The information plaques are in multiple languages (Croatian, English, German, Italian) and are very interesting. The museum itself is a beautiful building and there's a way...More

Free entry with senior concession and Split card! We had the place mostly to ourselves. Would suit a mature clientele, not suitable for children or teens.

Great opportunity to put some colour and people into the beautiful architecture. Nicely laid out, easy to understand and varied exhibitions. Absolutely worth a visit, not just to escape the sun. Make sure you head to the terrace and hopefully you’ll be above the vestibule...More
