The ethnographic museum of Split is housed in a building that itself already is of exceptional cultural and historical architectural significance.

Fancy yourself walking trough a room dating from the 4th century. The actual former bedroom of the Emperor Diocletian himself? The most intimate part of the Palace? Yes? We thought so...

Located next to the Peristyle - the central square of the Diocletian Palace - the museum presents an extremely valuable ethnographic collection portraying the old ways of life in Split, the islanders and farmers of the Dalmatian hinterland and more.

The museum's permanent collection displays regional costumes, jewelery, pottery, knitting, and other various handmade artifacts.

The museum provides adequate access for visitors with special needs.
