Split’s Newest Hub for Fun: Meet the Museum of Senses

Daniela Rogulj

There’s a new museum in Split, and it’s here to activate all of your senses. 

Do you want to find your way through a maze of mirrors? Keep your balance on a spinning vortex tunnel? Or measure your height against famous Split basketball player Dino Rađa? Believe it or not, all of that is possible now that the Museum of Senses has opened at City Center One in Split, reports Slobodna Dalmacija on October 11, 2018. 

Split citizens and visitors to the city can experience the first ‘interpretation center of fun’ in Croatia which features 30 interactive exhibits. The museum’s founders, two Croatians and one Slovenian, opened the same concept in Prague and Bucharest a year ago. Not surprisingly, it was a huge success – some 100,000 people visited their museums, and in less than a year on Tripadvisor, they ranked sixth among the 333 museums in Prague, and in Bucharest, seventh among the 60.

“We also expect this in Split, where we invested a lot more and went a step further. After Prague and Bucharest, we changed the concept a little. The main theme is still the senses, but with local subthemes,” said Dejan Grbić, a Slovenian with a Croatian address and a former manager of a large corporation. 

The museum, which includes interactive installations through a combination of games, education, science and culture, places the basic and best-known feelings into focus – vision, hearing, smell, balance and touch. At the very beginning of the museum tour, visitors receive basic information on the human senses, and will find that the exhibition is divided into five different theme areas related to Split and Dalmatia. 

Each zone is color coordinated, and visitors must pass through a dark room before they can enter a new zone. The museum boasts various installations which activate your senses through music, fragrances, or lights. 

In the first zone, which puts ‘vision’ into focus, visitors can enjoy a 3D aquarium, a version of the famous Split street ‘Pusti me proć’, a disco room dedicated to Dino Dvornik, and a ‘Dino Rađa room’ where visitors can measure their height against the famous basketball player. 

Upon leaving the interactive museum, visitors are even welcomed by a ‘memory desk’, where children and adults can enjoy sensory and didactic toys, gadgets, puzzles and branded souvenirs. 

The Museum of Senses is open in City Center One now. Adult tickets go for 80 kuna, while children’s tickets are 50 kuna.
