Why is this not promoted?!?! *ENTER THROUGH BIG GATES* (Wasn't obvious to us) This was fantastic and this building is house to a very impressive collection of artefacts that only reveal themselves once you read the small print. If they were in the National History...More

We can only be grateful to Austro-Hungarian Empire and it's Emperor Franz Joseph I for establishing such a beautiful museum! Split is one of the rare towns which has TWO archeology museums - another being the Museum of Croatian Archeological Monuments. But if you visited...More

Outside have lots of Roman pieces and history, but with few explanations, unless you have been to other parts of Greek and Roman sights. Inside good long explanations in several languages, must look and read them all to get full benefit to your visit, only...More

Plenty if items collected in the area. Dome more information could be a great addition, and if you have bad vision the small information text might be a problem. We spent around an hour at the museum which was well enough. To enter they charged...More
