What travelers say:

The Split Archaeological Museum is not within the boundaries of the old city. After leaving the Golden Gate, walk all the way north, through the alley behind the National Theater, and walk for another 15 minutes. The building complex to which the museum belongs is composed of the outer gallery and the main building. Most of the cultural relics excavated from the coast of Dalmatia are stored here. The preservation requirements of stone cultural relics are not high. A large number of exquisite sarcophagus sculptures and stone reliefs that should be used for building exterior decoration are displayed in the outdoor corridor. What's interesting is that the ticket office of the museum is not near the corridor at the entrance, but in the main building, which needs to pass through a large green space. The main building is also the main exhibition hall of the museum. Ancient Greek pottery, ancient Roman glass, and earlier boneware are displayed chronologically. At the same time, a large number of historical currency displays are also the highlights of the museum.

    Interesting.

    Being fervent lover of history, but not so much of archeological stuff, I find this museum excellent for introducing me in things, pertaining to archeology.
