As the oldest museum institution in Croatia, the Split Archaeological Museum was founded in 1820 by the decree of the Dalmatian government in Zadar. The incentive for the establishment of the Museum was provided by the visit of Emperor Francis I to Dalmatia in 1818, which also included visits to Split and Solin. The original museum building was erected in 1821 next to the eastern walls of Diocletian’s Palace, but soon became too small to house the growing number of monuments.
Library : Since its establishment more than a century ago, the Library has acquired numerous valuable publications on archaeology, history and history or art. It houses over 50,000 volumes, including 8 incunabula and about 170 16th-century books.
