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.

General museum of Trogir history. Not big, but puts some bigger museums to shame ( hang your head Split Archaeological Museum ) as the displays have good captions in English and there's some really interesting relics including in situ foundations of ancient houses qnd a roman grave. The star for me was a huge cockerel figurehead captured from an ottoman galley at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571.

Town Museum is located in the old town of Trogir, near Split, in Dalmatian Coast. It is a little museum of the city, which we went to visit. It is ok. You can see some paintings, archeological discoveries and learn a bit about this Venetian-style city. Ok. Pitifully, we arrive a special day, and only we could see the museum for 30 minutes (it closed before the normal time).

Went on a rainy day, entry was 20 kuna. Stayed for 45-60 minutes, and learnt quite a lot about Trogir and its history. Some really cool old stone works

The museum gives a nice little overview of Trogir's history and is located in the middle of the city. Another part portraits Cata Duišin Ribar, a local painter.

While being a bit small it is definitely worth a visit given the low price.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
