Split Ethnographic Museum (Etnografski Muzej Split) Tours

Split Ethnographic Museum (Etnografski Muzej Split)
Split’s Ethnographic Museum (Etnografski Muzej) has been showcasing Dalmatia’s rich cultural heritage since the beginning of the 20th century. Located within Diocletian’s Palace, the museum comprises historical exhibits, a 7th-century church and medieval courtyard, and a rooftop terrace with panoramic views of Split Old Town.

The Basics

From folk costumes and traditional toys to Roman staircases and Renaissance decoration, there’s much to see across the museum’s three floors. If you want to experience a guided museum tour, then booking in advance is recommended, however advance purchase of an admission ticket is not required. Showing a SplitCard—a must for budget-conscious travelers—gives you free entry to the museum, the City Museum, and Saint Domnius Cathedral, plus discounted admission to many top Split attractions.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A visit to Split’s Ethnographic Museum is worthwhile for history buffs, culture vultures, and photographers.
  • An elevator provides wheelchair and stroller access to all main museum floors.
  • A steep staircase leads to the Vestibul rooftop, which is not currently wheelchair accessible.
  • Visitors need to pay a small admission fee to enter the museum.

How to Get There
Conveniently located within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace, the museum is within walking distance of most major Split sights. Diocletian’s Palace is served by hop-on hop-off buses, which allow you to disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention. The ferry terminal and main train station are both a short walk away.

When to Get There

The often-overlooked museum offers a break from the afternoon crowds of Split. Coincide your rooftop visit with one of the regular klapa (Croatian singing) performances in the Vestibul below for an immersive cultural experience.

Home to a Roman Emperor and Queen of Meereen

Diocletian’s Palace is known for royal history; in the 4th century, the site of Ethnographic Museum itself served as the personal chambers of the Emperor Diocletian. However, fans of fiction may also recognise Diocletian’s Palace as a filming location in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Visitors can descend into the basement cellars to see where the Mother of Dragons ruled over Meereen and kept her children in captivity, with some tours including entry in the price.
