Plitvice Lakes National Park is of Croatia’s most popular natural attractions. Little wonder why it has visitors swooning: this UNESCO World Heritage Site is packed with enchanting forests, cascading waterfalls, and gem-toned lakes. Here are your options for exploring the park from Split.
Ul. kralja Tomislava 5, Split, 21000
Over 20 exhibits showcase the frogs participating in a variety of activities. Highlights include a frog circus, a classroom, a swimming pool, and a somewhat ironic tableau where frogs are enjoying a fishing trip at a riverside campsite. Additional scenes include an amphibious blacksmith and tailor, ballroom-dancing frogs, a frog-filled courtroom, and frogs training in track-and-field athletics.
Things to Know Before You Go
Plan 30 minutes to one hour to visit the small museum.
There is a gift shop on-site where you can buy unique frog-inspired souvenirs including postcards of your favorite froggy scenes.
The museum is wheelchair-accessible, although there is a low step at the entrance.
How to Get There
The museum is located on Kralja Tomislava in central Split, just a short walk from Diocletian's Palace. From the waterfront, follow the central boulevard of Marmontova and look for the signs.
When to Get There
Froggyland is open daily from April to October, but is closed during the winter months. It’s a popular spot, and the small museum can get busy in peak season (July–August), so get there early to beat the crowds.
Quirky Museums in Croatia
Other unusual museums in Croatia include the Museum of Broken Relationships, the Museum of Torture, and the Museum of Illusions, all in Zagreb. The Peek&Poke Computer Museum in Rijeka has old computers and vintage video games, and the Malacological Museum in Makarska is full to the brim with seashells. Thousands of bugs and creepy crawlies fill the World of Insects Museum in Varaždin.
