Ul. Zrinsko Frankopanska 25, Split, Croatia, 21000

The Basics

Many of the artefacts displayed in the museum come from the Roman ruins of Salona and Tuluscum, two important archaeological sites also managed by Split Archaeological Museum; several tours, which depart from either central Split or the coastal city of Trogir, include admission to both. Budget-conscious travelers can save money with a combined ticket that includes admission to the museum and the Salona or Issa archaeological sites, or receive discounted admission with a SplitCard.

Issa Archaeological Museum

Take a break from the mainland and catch a boat to the nearby island of Vis, which is close to the Bisevo Blue Cave and home to the Issa Archaeological Museum. Established by the Split Archaeological Museum in 1983, the collection is located on the bay in a 19th-century Austrian fort, and boasts one of Croatia’s largest collections of ancient Greek artefacts. It’s possible to purchase combined entry for both museums, to be used over a week.
