Nicely laid out over several floors, this museum gives a glimpse into the huge wealth of history that Split has to offer. It’s a good starting point to your visit.

I stumbled across this gallery by accident and decided to take a look. It was a very interesting gallery space and I immensely enjoyed the Emanuel Vidovic exhibition. The range of his paintings showcased post-impressionist style using light and intense colour, often depicting his studio...More

As our island cruise was canceled due to strong wind, we visited here in the northeastern part of the ancient palace. It was very interesting to see the history of Split, especially to see medieval manuscripts in a Gothic building made in 15th century. But...More

There is information in English but most of the exhibits would make more sense if you read Croatian (or in some cases Italian).
