It was 20 kuna each to get in. The building was well spaced with exhibits on national costumes, lace work, fishing and childbirth amongst others. The building was air conditioned and had clean, free toilets. The exhibitions were informative and interesting.

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.
