The Archaeological Museum Split is a well set out museum. The displays feature both Croatian and English language descriptions of the exhibits in a more or less chronological order. One of the highlights inside the museum is the collection of Roman Empire coins. Outside, the...More

Tried to visit it during opening hours but we could not get in because none was there (the sign was there but the door was locked). Maybe call before you want to go.

This museum was rather hard to find as we originally were directed to the Croatian museum by mistake! It’s based in an old-fashioned house, surrounded by a lush garden. We went in October and enjoyed sitting in the beautifully maintained garden. As others have noted,...More

My wife and I have visited archaeological museums covering prehistoric, Greek and Roman periods throughout Europe. The collection in this museum is one of the best - particularly for everyday objects (like a Roman cattle brand which we have never seen elsewhere) as well as...More

10 minutes North West of the city walls. Absolutely worth the short stroll. A tremendous collection of antiquities from Palaeolithic axe heads to medieval bronze helmets with everything in between. We spent an hour fascinated by this museum and could have spent more time here....More

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

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
