Overview
More
The Museum of Fine Arts in Split was opened in 1931. Museum’s valuable collection today holds over 5,200 works and spans a time period from the 14th century to the most recent art production. The collection reflects the specific tastes and cultural standards of states and societies that succeeded one after the other in this region: from the Venetian Republic, Austro-Hungarian Empire, kingdom and socialist Yugoslavia to the Republic of Croatia. The display of some 400 artworks on the 2,200 m2 of exhibition space presents style, theme and media diversity of the collection in all its richness, thus providing the possibility of a unique time travel and unrepeatable experience of the evolution of artistic creativity. Besides the collection, you can visit some of our exciting temporary exhibitions showing Croatian and international art.

It was like discovering a new author. All these amazing artists that I’d never heard of and the difference in styles was a real eye opener encouraging me to further my new thirst for local knowledge.

We. Enjoyed this museum because we like modern and contemporary art. The exhibit is broader but I think the reason to visit is the contemporary and modern art. It’s just next to the palace area so easy to find and not expensive to enter.

When I go to a fine art gallery, I don't expect to see lots of space dedicated to "here's a lot of junk some pretentious dude threw in a corner with flashy lights". The lower floor seems to be dedicated to art a 5 year...More
