We loved the views from this place, but weren't so fussed by the actual exhibits! However, it's an alright way to spend some time away from the busy streets.

If you like traditional museums and a bit of an escape from the Dubrovnik madness then this is a really nice place to spend an hour or so- some lovely views across the city and some beautiful textiles, changing displays and images of traditional Croatia. Use the Dubrovnik Card as the individual entrance fees for the museums will feel pricey.

A poorly designed museum with an exorbitant entry fee and little information of value. The museum workers haven't put even half as much effort into making this place fun and educational as they put into zealously and angrily prohibiting non-flash photography of their few mildly interesting exhibits. By the way, they couldn't even explain why that photography policy is in... More

Rather than buying single entrance just to this museum (which you can't do) you buy a Museums of Dubrovnik ticket, which allows you to visit 9 museums one time each over 7 days. We ended up visiting 8 and used it to give purpose to our wanderings and to help us explore the city. The ticket costs 80 kuna (around... More

First of all this is a fortified building built specially for the preservation of grain, corn, as food, should the medieval city be under siege. There are 15 holes (Rupe) carved and used as perfect reserve for grain. It is a typical way of having food reserve for a medieval city. With a differenc that today only this one remains... More

Included with the Dubrovnik pass, this museum highlights the ethnic Culture of the area. Worth visiting if you have the pass, and offers a nice view form the terrace out front

The ground floor with the toys was a little disappointing but upstairs the traditional clothes and metal work jewellery was lovely. Also the farming/country life floor was very interesting but could have had more descriptions of the various artefacts and th

An interesting collection of objects and clothing, which gives some insight into the culture and history of Croatia. However, there is a shortage of extra facts and information. It is a small museum, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Once you have bought your ticket for the Rector's palace this museum is included for the same price, the building is very interesting. There is an explanation of how the building was used as a granary but you have to search it out on the walls. If would be better if they explained how the building was used in the... More

It is an impressive building which was an old granary. However nothing tells you anything about this part of its history. The entrance floor had a lot of photographs of bicycles in Denmark (!) That seemed just a way of filling space. The first and second floors has some rural artefacts and costumes. This was all elegantly displayed but with... More
