Friday Night At the Museum In Split

Sarcophagus of Hippolytus and Phedra



Last night the city of Split hosted the NOC MUZEJA '10, which translates to night at the museum, from 6pm to 1am you could visit any museum in the city free of charge.



We chose to visit the Archaeological Museum only because a friend of my husband invited us a few days earlier saying his band was going to be playing there. At the time, we had no idea that it was Museum Night.


Could this have been a Greek Goddess?





I noticed this was the only sculpture with its head intact.




Oh wait, that's my hubby..



We enjoyed live music by the band Lite Motive. I love their costumes. Don't you?



Unfortunately our time was limited, our babysitter (grandpa) was anxiously awaiting our return home, otherwise we would have visited other museums.

Afterwards we joined our friends and walked downtown to the Pizzeria Galija, known as having the best pizza in Split. It was my first visit and I was not disappointed, the pizza was excellent: a crispy crust with the perfect balance of cheese and tomato sauce.

I would recommend you stop by and check it out next time you are in the city.

  4. Great post! This "Night At the Museum" became a very big thing in Croatia since last year and this year, the numbers doubled! I think the authorities should consider having one night each month to be something like this!

  8. I agree @secretdalmatia. I was surprised to see so many people! Maybe Kerum will try and boost his popularity and repeat this again? LOL, let's hope so.
