I wanted to go to one of the other two history museums, but it was Sunday so this was the only one that was open.

I was most interested in the Roman section of the museum, which was very insightful. I visited this museum at the end of my visit to Split and wish I visited it in the beginning because it did a very good job explaining the Roman history of the city which I could have used walking around.

All in all, I thought the museum was good on information and light on artifacts.

When you are in "old Split", this is a good to great place to see history, did not personally care for the 19th & 20th century part of their presentation but you do not have to look or read the panels.
Worth the time and reasonably easy to find, not for wheelchair or crutches bound.

Housed in the former Papalic Palace the museum is in the old city not far from the Golden & Silver Gates. The collection contains a lot of smaller, beautifully preserved relics rather than the larger pieces at the Archaeological Museum.

If you are in the Diocletian Palace a visit to the museum will enhance the experience.

This museum was OK, it had a few different bits and pieces in it. It was OK if you have time to kill but if you didn't visit you wouldn't be missing much. The staff were really friendly.

The city of Split has a long history and the museum reflects bits and pieces, just enough to give you a flavor and a sense of its citizens' pride of it. It doesn't take long to walk through and the displays can hold the interest of children.
