I've noticed that a few reviewers have indicated how strange the lay-out of the house is, but didn't mention why. The reason is because this was not set up to be a museum initially. It was initially a home that was occupied by the Papalic family in the 14th century. So that would be the reason for the layout to... 更多
This charming small museum wasn't particularly well-organized, but the Venetian Palazzo that housed it was more interesting than the collection. I loved the layout of the rooms - and the entrance courtyard garden. It seemed to me that the spaces of this museum were arranged more as concert and event spaces than as museum galleries. This might be an excellent... 更多
The museum is housed in an old house which was of evident interest, but we couldn't seem to learn anything about it. The collection itself was poorly organized - information was all over the place and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason to how the rooms were organized.
This is a great little museum, which will give anyone a good introduction to the city, but the star turn is the magnificent mensa, Diocletian's dining table - take a look, and then go up behind the Cathedral to look at the space it would have been in. I simply couldn't get over this wonderful object.
A couple of interesting things to read. Oddball art. Really odd interactive things to do that have nothing to do with anything. Unless you are looking to beat the heat or the rain....walking around the old town for free is better.
We stumbled upon this museum after lunch. I didn't think it would be that interesting, but found myself intrigued the whole time. The museum goes from the Diocletian/Roman empire times, to the Austrian-Hungarian times. A lot of it is more about daily life as a middle/upper middle class citizen of the times, but it was very informative.
We literally went into this museum by mistake, thinking it was something else, but we were glad we did. It provided a different historic perspective on the history of Split and had artifacts on display that were interesting. Looking out the windows as we climbed to the top floor provided lovely views that were picture worthy of the rooftops of... 更多
It had a range of exhibits and overall it is worth a quick visit. There is alot of old weapons on display and a very handy app for your phone to help explain displays.
The ground floor of the museum especially is a great introduction to the history of Diocletian's Palace which is basically the old city of Split.
