The museum was quite old fashioned. It occupied an old, grand stone house with a tree-shaded courtyard. Inside, a long double gallery displayed ancient Greek and Roman pottery fragments, spear points, iron tools. The exhibit of ancient Greek glass was interesting, as were a couple...More

This place was amazing - lots to see, easy to walk around. We hadn’t heard of this place until my husband did a google search on the drive there. Reminded me of the ruins in Rome- less grand scale and less crowded.

A small and quiet museum, we were the only ones there on a weekday afternoon. Impressive collection, lots of Roman era items, but a room goes back to the Bronze age and to the Stone Age. I really wish they'd sell a English-language history book...More

A nice modest museum with lots of coins and a nice time line inside. Outside seems to be stone statues etc taken from Salona. Great for Roman or Greek enthusiasts less so for other interests. It is cool and not noisy so enjoy

The museum is a little out of the centre, but worth the walk. It is small, but packed with artefacts, with English descriptions. Lots of Roman material outside to stroll around as well, so a couple of hours well spent.

An interesting museum containing finds from around Split. If you are in Split for a few days, its worth a visit.

The museum was founded in 1820 on the initiative of Francis I, emperor of Austria. He had visited the newly annexed area in 1818 and had been impressed with the immense amount of classical material in the area. The museum outgrew its original quarters, and...More
