Overindulgence on abstract art, only one floor of fine art.

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.

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

Checked the gallery website and TripAdvisor site for the opening times, because I didn't want a wasted journey. These sites both said the gallery was open today (Sunday 24th September 2017). When I got to the gallery it was closed, despite the websites and sign...More

Though it takes a long view, going back to the 14th century, this is largely a gallery of modern and contemporary art. And it was very impressive, with a fascinating temporary exhibition by a Kosovan artist, and a touring exhibition with interventions from many leading...More

Located just north of Diocletian's palace, this gallery is well worth a visit if you have any interest at all in art. The early art (Renaissance/baroque) is mostly quite dull (lots of fairly mediocre religious art by unknown painters), the 19th and 20th century stuff,...More
