    The City museum is situated in the Papulic palace. It has a collection of weapons, some artworks from Medieval period through the 18th century, and some pictures and books of the city history, in addition to the city statue, coins and seals. Marulic's works(some) who was famed poet are in here also. Started in 1946It is only 15 kuna or $3 to enter, and takes about 1/2 hour to tour. It is open 9-1 except Sunday. The Papaulic palace ws nice to see.
    Ethnograph museum is above the Peristile in a newer location. It is $2, or 10 kuna, but did not seem like much to see, and the greeter was most unpleasant, so we left. It is by the ruins on the substructure, so you need to walk up a short set of stairs from the stairs that also go down to the catacombs.

    This is a nice, but small museum that takes about 1/2 hour to tour. It has some books and coins, and seals of Split, plus a variety of weapons and tolls of the cultures. Entry is $4 and an okay tour at best. It is locted in Palpulic palace and in the Carrarina Poljana in NW corner of the palace walls and intermingled with many other palaces.

    The Split Municipal Museum, located in the Palace, covers the history of Split from the Middle Ages until the 20th centruy. The exhibitions include cultural, historical, and artistic holdings representing the political, economic, social and urban development of the city. It's definitely worth droping by.

    The ticket cost ten kunas. The museum is open 9-12 & 17-20 Tue-Fri and 10-12 on weekends.

    City Museum (Gradski muzej)

    This museum just north of the Peristyle is housed in what used to be the Gothic Papalic Palace. You'll enter into a beautiful, covered courtyard, complete with a loggia and a stone stairway leading up to the first floor.

    Inside the museum, I was most interested to see the reconstructed Papalic dining room where you'll find artifacts relating to Marko Marulic, the first Dalmatian poet to write in Croatian rather than Latin.

    Hours:
    In winter:
    Tuesday - Friday from 10am to 5pm, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 12am, closed on Mondays and holidays.

    In summer:
    Tuesday - Friday from 9am to 9pm, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 1pm, closed on Mondays and holidays.

    On the photo is the entrance court of the Papalic palace, 15th century, and today this is the Museum of the city of Split. The palace is built in Gothic-Renaissance style.
