A couple of interesting things to read. Oddball art. Really odd interactive things to do that have nothing to do with anything. Unless you are looking to beat the heat or the rain....walking around the old town for free is better.

Not the best city museum I have seen. The building was interesting, the collection odd and not well organised

We stumbled upon this museum after lunch. I didn't think it would be that interesting, but found myself intrigued the whole time. The museum goes from the Diocletian/Roman empire times, to the Austrian-Hungarian times. A lot of it is more about daily life as a middle/upper middle class citizen of the times, but it was very informative.

We literally went into this museum by mistake, thinking it was something else, but we were glad we did. It provided a different historic perspective on the history of Split and had artifacts on display that were interesting. Looking out the windows as we climbed to the top floor provided lovely views that were picture worthy of the rooftops of... More

It had a range of exhibits and overall it is worth a quick visit. There is alot of old weapons on display and a very handy app for your phone to help explain displays.

The ground floor of the museum especially is a great introduction to the history of Diocletian's Palace which is basically the old city of Split.

30 to 45min visit. The museum is situated as part of an amazing building and has a very relax atmosphere. The content is a bit unclear, no much structure and you do not get a clear picture of the history of the city. We were a bit disappointed.

I went to see what it had to offer. It is very bright and light and does have some good exhibits but overall does not cater well for non Croatian speakers. I found the roof construction on a small house was created, below it has layers of stone on substantial timbers and above it is all mortared together. The later... More

We made a quick stop to explore a bit of history in the city museum. It was fun to walk around and pictures are allowed as long as you don't use flash.

The collection of the museum isn't spectacular but it's still nice to look around and find out a little more about the city's history. A cool roman dining table area and some more recent objects like a carrier and a beautiful vase really made it worth it. I also liked how I could see how the rooftiles look from the... More
