The Ethnographic Museum is located in an old granary dating to the 16th century. The traditional rural croft economy and architecture of the Dubrovnik region is on the first floor. The folk costumes and textile handiwork on the 2nd floor was closed the day we were there. Small but interesting, especially construction techniques of centuries-old buildings.

I don't know if I had visited this museum if we didn't have it included on our Dubrovnik card, but as it was, I'm glad we did. Don't know if it's really worth it paying for it separately though. It's really great to see the housing, agriculture and clothing in the Croatian culture, it was very informative, so if you... More

I went to this museum due to my Dubrovnik card and would only recommend doing so if you get the card. While it has a nice selection of festival clothing, delicately embroidery and a collection of antique tools. It's not a large collection and I would press to go otherwise.

I gained entry with my 24 hour Dubrovnik Card which provided entry to many of Dubrovnik's sights, bus travel, and the city wall. The museum is away from the main street of Dubrovnik so you need a map to find the street; you don't just come across it. The display has two floors with free washrooms on the third. I... More

The Dubrovnik museums ticket grants one visit each to nine museums over seven days, which is well worth it. Sadly we couldn't spend more time here as the desk clerk didn't feel the need to tell us we had arrived only ten minutes before closing time. One staff member's sole purpose seemed to be angrily following and watching us to... More

We only visited here as it was on the Dubrovnik card and we had seen pretty much everything else in the old town. The exhibits are well displayed and mildly interesting, my wife particularly liked the costumes. It is in a very nice building and there are good views of the old town. I don't think it would be worth... More

This, the Ethnographic Museum, shows life through the ages in the region. Entrance is included in the Dubrovnik Tourist Ticket. Some of the tableaux/photos/items were interesting, though we found it frustrating that the information boards that told you about the individual items were wall mounted too far from the actual items.

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
