The Gallery of Fine Arts in the Croatian City of Split is a fine arts museum that was established in 1931.The museum contains work dating from the 14th century to modern day and specialises in showcasing the local art scene. A Dalmatian governor was inspired by an art exhibit in 1908 to start a collection of his own and started to collect pieces which he gave to the director of the local school of crafts. In 1928 they launched a bid for a museum to be created in the city to display the growing collection, this opened in 1931. Since then the collection has grown and in 2001 the Gallery of Fine Arts in Split was rehoused after the local council granted a larger space in a redevelopment of an old hospital. The museum is still housed in this old hospital and displays many permanent works of art and hosts monthly exhibits to display local and foreign artists works.
The museum is situated within close proximity to Diocletian's Palace and is accessible by the city's transport system and by foot.
