Reading the review that immediately precedes mine, I have to chuckle. That reviewer wrote that the stuff on olive oil production was most interesting, while the clothes and weapons were less so. *I* was just about to write that I found the stuff on olive oil production to be really dull, but loved the clothes and lace and costumes and...

Well-laid out, well signed in Croatian and English, a wide range of local artifacts. The olive harvest interested me the most although I can well understand that others would be fascinated by the ethnic costumes or the weapons. A pleasant place to pass an hour or so of your day.

We went into the museum for shelter whilst spending a day in Split in the pouring rain, and were so pleased we did! It's a modern museum exhibiting traditional folk costumes, customs, occupations, artifacts and even a reconstructed room. All in a contemporary conversion of a building in an old part of Split, next to the town walls. We happily... More

I liked this modern, well organised museum in an interesting building. Temporary exhibition was about olive oil production and it was very investing. The permanent exhibition includes costumes, wood work, toys, lace, and has a focus on island communities. Obliging staff and plenty of rest areas with nice outlooks.

This museum has a great collection of native costumes which we hadn't seen elsewhere. You can see it in an hour, and it's well worth going.

It is a small museum where there are some artifacts from olive productions from different times, costumes from the regions from the 19th and 20th century and jewelry from the time. Except from that, nothing else to see.

Only £2 to get in , the museum building is very interesting itself. The exhibits are average , but found the roof terrace by chance , it's above the vestibule, you can here the singers and see them if you can peer over the edge. The views of Split are excellent , some of our best photos , takes the... More

The museum itself is small giving you a glimpse of life in Croatia from the late 19 century to the late 20th century. Exhibits include period clothing and furniture, jewelry, knives and guns. Some interesting black and white photos shed some light on life back then. Add to that some cheesy dioramas and you have an enjoyable hour. The best... More

Very well laid out, easy to work around, informative and mostly translated to English (and other languages) Worth a visit, for 15kuna. Access to the vestibule is also great, less steps and much less busy than the bell tower if you're looking for a good view that isn't as high.

This is a great museum built around old ruins, but very modern inside. And air conditioned which was a blessing on a very hot summer day. The exhibits are first class and give insight into Croatian life. We especially loved the clothing exhibits.
