The Collection of Uniforms, Naval Dress and Equipment of the Croatian Maritime Museum in Split primarily contains uniforms from the navies of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, the Kingdom of Croats, Serbs and Slovenes/Yugoslavia, the Independent State of Croatia, the Yugoslav Navy and finally the Croatian Navy. In addition, a certain number of objects belonged to the navies of foreign countries whose warships visited Split during the 20th century, such as Great Britain, France, Israel, India, Canada, the Netherlands, Mexico, Australia, and Greece.

Standing out for their cultural and historical value are the uniforms of sailors of the Boka Navy from the first half of the 19th century and two sailor's chests also from the 19th century.

The Collection also includes items related to recent history, namely the Croatian War of Independence and the Croatian Navy. These include part of the uniform of Mile Čatlak, the first commander of the First Detachment of Naval Commandos of the Croatian Navy from 1991, and the ceremonial uniform of Sveto Letica, the first staff admiral of the Croatian Navy.

The collection further contains a large number of other pieces of sailor's and officer's equipment: epaulettes and shoulder insignias indicating the ranks from the above-mentioned navies that sailed in the Adriatic, trouser belts, caps, cap emblems and various other naval insignia.
