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

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.
