  • This is the oldest museum in Croatia. When it was founded in 1820 this museum was sufficient for a collection of archeological monuments and objects. Today it has around 150,000 units, of which only a small part is in a permanent exhibition. More than a modest exhibition space is called a solution that the fund will not permanently remain hidden treasure. The museum building complex with a garden is more than attractive The Museum Garden is beautiful and full of stone monuments underneath the porches that surround it. Eight collections lead us into the ancient world from prehistory to the Middle Ages in Dalmatia, especially the former city of Salona near Split.
  • Great place for a rainy day
  • Inside small and hot. Garden is nice. Very small signs with text.
  • Its got old stuff thats good
  • As a lover of Roman antiquities I say skip it. 2 rooms with small household items, some statues and sarcophagues badly displayed in the garden.
