Info at In Your Pocket is a good summary. Museum website is Flash-enabled - doesn't appear to have any English pagesWe visited August 2009.Fascinating museum. 10 kn admission included an excellent guided tour, our guide spoke good English. Picked up a lot of Croatian history during our visit. Torpedo display particularly interesting - torpedoes were invented by a UK-Italian partnership in Rijeka (Google Whitehead-Luppis). Strongly recommended.

Having read the positive reviews, we thought this would be an interesting visit. The fortress itself is crumbling and not maintained. Indeed, there is a sign saying "Enter at your own risk". Despite a notice on the door to the museum saying it was open...More

A very quiet day, plenty to see and a wide selection on display. Not much translated to English but you could pay more for that. The boat outside that can be climbed on would satisfy kids (and two 25 year olds). 15kuna a suitable price...More

This is a must for anyone interested in maritime development but if, like us, you are only mildly interested it can still be rewarding. The museum has two parts. Rooms 2 to 5 are naval history mostly from about 1900 onwards culminating in a room...More

The museum is an easy walk from the town. The exhibits are really remarkable - lots of ordinary artifacts from Croatia's maritime history. There is also a lot of lovely artwork which is maritime themed. The grounds are lovely, with some outdoor exhibits and a...More

This museum is interesting and you can see a lot of stuff. It is a small place but worth visiting. Would recommend to everyone that loves maritime stuff.

It is hard to find this place - there are no street signs to it from the centre of Split so what should be a 5 to 10 minute walk became a 20 minute maze constantly having to ask people where it is. Even once...More

It took us a little while to find the museum from Split harbour. Once we found it we were greeted warmly by the lady on reception who told us about the 2 sections of the museum and the photo exhibit that was on. You could...More

The Croatian Maritime Museum is a very beautiful small museum located in the Fortress Gripe, very near the Academy of Arts. For a very, very cheap ticket (2 EUR) you can enjoy a nice time travel. In the museum you can see lots of ship...More

I had a little problem finding this museum hidden somewhere in the Gripe fortress (behind the Diocletian palace). The entrance to the museum was very interesting; it was like going onto a ship. In the museum you could see a lot of vessels, maritime tools,...More
