The first think which surprised us about the museum, was the beautiful building, we actually passed by hundreds of times by car, not noticing it because large trees along the outside wall. But when you first get inside there is a beautiful garden, and alone the surrounding wall you find an exhibition of large findings mainly from Diocletian’s Palace and the old roman city Salona.
