The exhibits are presented well and have good narratives. The 7th century church/chapel tucked in this museum is such a surprise. Good views from the windows.

This museum's collection is predominantly clothing and fabric from traditional Croatian cultures. It's a good collection if this is an area that interests you. I did wish there was more other types of exhibits, I really enjoyed the photographs, for example, and some more variation...More

It was 20 kuna each to get in. The building was well spaced with exhibits on national costumes, lace work, fishing and childbirth amongst others. The building was air conditioned and had clean, free toilets. The exhibitions were informative and interesting.

If you don’t want to climb the bell tower in the palace, this is the next best thing to do—-and cheaper too. Only 5kn to walk to the top. You get a great view of the bell tower and the city.

It is cheap and there is air conditioning, nice on a hot day. Better than the city museum but still not much to see.
