Ethnographic Museum houses ethnography of the whole Dalmatia. It houses a collection of traditional costumes, jewelry, lace, weapons, toys and tools. Best of all you can climb the Roman terrace encircling the top of the vestibule, and the views are reason enough to visit the museum.
Museum is cheap, has some interesting exhibits and comes with a great view from the vestibule, whose entrance is around the corner. Cons are that while everything is labeled and translated into English, the information boards in each room are in dry, highly specific and very boring academic language (at least in English; they are also in Hrvatski, Deutsch, Français and Italiano). More simple-language narratives and fewer words overall would have been nice. For example, I noticed that a lot of the clothes were festooned with Austro-Hungarian coins. That’s interesting and unusual. Would have been nice to know how, where and why that got started. Also, the place is mostly breeze- and shade-cooled, even though there was at least one heat pump. God knows how Dalmatians survived in these heavy, wool outfits! Bathrooms / WC was free and clean.
