City Museum of Split

Dive into Split's past.

City Museum of Split, founded in 1946, has grown into the leading cultural institution in the town. It is housed in the magnificent Late Gothic/Early Renaissance palace of the Papalić (Papali) family, built in the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, that is widely considered as being one of the finest examples of residential architecture from the period in whole of Croatia. The complex includes a private courtyard with a well, a staircase and elegant Gothic double windows that lead to the great hall on the first floor which still has the restored original painted wooden ceiling.

The museum spreads across three floors, telling the story of the rich history of Split and its citizens. From the marble dining table from Diocletian’s own dining room on the ground floor, to the copy of the City Statute of 1312 in the great hall on the first floor – the City Museum of Split should be in every visitors itinerary.
