About
It´s not easy to be The Town Museum in a Town that has been called "Museum Town" - in a town where every single stone, every street, every house... has its own secret story! But, when you decide to visit the Trogir Town Museum you will be able to see some of revealed secrets, you will be able to see what´s underneath those old stones, streets and houses. Trogir Town Museum cherishes the remains dating from the 3rd millennium BC to 20th century AD. And that is why the Town Museum is the best way to start exploring Trogir - town that has been continuously inhabited since the late bronze age.

Intimate and informative museum

An interesting insight into the history of Trogir with clothes, furniture, a beautiful library, carved stones and a wonderful Roman bath. Well worth a visit. We were short on time and should have allowed longer perhaps an hour or two but easily nipped round in half an hour if you're short of time!

Underwhelming museum; poorly organized
Oct. 2018 • Friends
Trogir's Town Museum is the former Garagnin-Fanfogna palace a couple of blocks northeast of the main square. I found the museum underwhelming, in need of organization, and not up to the quality worthy of Trogir's rich history. The Garagnin-Fanfogna palace mixes Romanesque and Baroque styles of architecture, with a beautiful carved balcony over the main door. Permanent collections in the museum span the period from Trogir's founding to the 20th century. Unfortunately, they are not organized very well, and my purchased museum guide listed items, but didn't explain them. Museum signs and labels were in Croatian and English. There are three main parts: a collection of stone carvings (e.g., moldings, coats of arms) from ancient buildings; a gallery of works by modern Croatian painters and the main museum (a half-dozen furnished rooms with books, documents, paintings and period costumes). Regrettably, the famous Garagnin - Fanfogna library (founded in the 18th century) was not open to the public. I did not feel that the museum was worth the 25 kuna entry fee.

Great small museum

Well worth the fee and an hour of your time to browse. Really liked the stone carvings and the ceramic exhibition. Lovely building. Peaceful retreat from the busy streets.

Not worth the time
Aug. 2018 • Couples
Very poorly organised museum that needs a serious update. The exhibits are poorly explained with very little information available. It is a shame as Trogir has so much history and deserves a much better museum than this. I would recommend skipping the city museum.

Some nice relics in the courtyard
May 2018 • Couples
They have placed a few remnants of Roman ruins in the courtyard just outside the main entrance. We enjoyed wondering about where they might have been originally placed in construction. A quick tour through here is all you need.

Unorganised
Jul. 2017 • Couples
Just a random bunch of antiquities, the guide we purchased on the place was messy and didn't follow a logic order: was just a list of the things contained in the rooms. The two guys at the door are nice but can't help you and seem a bit out of place (and not so fluent in English). Isn't there any enthusiastic history student available to work there during the summer? I am sure a lot of British university students that would die to work in Trogir for the summer!

A hidden gem
May 2017 • Couples
After finally finding the entrance and having to ring the doorbell, we were greeted by a very surprised women who seemed delighted to have vistors to the museum (we assume it doesn't happen that often). For the grand old price of around £5 for my husband and myself, we walked around ancient artefacts from the romans and venetians amongst many others. We lived the history of Trogir through an amazing set of rooms full of amazing artefacts. We even got to see a local artists donations. We very much enjoyed our visit and would encourage everyone to support this wonderful small museum.

Interesting artefacts but not well publicised
May 2017 • Friends
The museum is housed in a venetian palace and several of the outbuildings. The entrance faces the North Gate of the city but is poorly advertised and the layout is old fashioned. The most interesting section are the rooms inside the palace but there are also architectural artefacts in the outbuildings. When we went there was an exhibition of one of the most important local painters which was interesting.The town is s small that it is easy to go back to the museum if it is closed when you arrive.

Short on early history
Oct. 2016 • Couples
There could have been far more detailed material about the early history, apart from a few pots and the Greek pavement(?) most of the material was fairly late. It seemed to skip from 300 AD to 1400AD, Most of the material was post medieval.
The gallery was just that,a gallery of an artist's work

Worth a visit!

This museum has so much history on show, it really is worth a visit. The geological remains are so well preserved and easy to identify. Loved the room setup showing decor of he period!
