Ethnographic Museum Split has its exhibition halls in the south-eastern part of Diocletian’s Palace, which once was used as the emperor’s private halls. Within the museum building there is a church of St. Andrew de Fenestris. It dates back to the time of Sever the Great when one of the six bedrooms (cubiculum) in the west part of the emperor’s flat was adapted. The Vestibule terrace can be reached through the museum. Round shaped Vestibule is a passage, an ante-chamber between the Peristyle and the emperor’s private halls. A reconstructed stairway leads to Natalis-Božičević’s family renaissance terrace, situated south of the Vestibule dome. The management and working part of the museum is situated in Božićević family house, one of the early medieval palaces in Split, construction layers of which date back to the Ancient period.
The museum exhibits collections of paintings, jewellery, weapons, chests and national costumes of the Adriatic and Dinaric regions.
