This attraction is made up of a few different sights, which offers some variation and opportunity to find something of interest to your tastes. This included a walk through the palace rooms as they would have been originally; a small area covering furniture, carriages, and a number of large silver cutlery sets; a small but heart-rending war photography exhibit; an...

We visited this museum as we had bought Dubrovnik cards and it was therefore free. It was interesting enough but I would probably not have paid the entry fee otherwise

I suppose different things in history interest different people. There is certainly something here for most with a wide variety of items. Over several floors, in this lovely building, there are exhibits of clothing, carriages, weapons, armour but of particular interest was the room devoted to coins and seals. All the rooms showing something from the city past Allow about... More

We had bought the Dubrovnik card so the entrance fee was included for us. Outside, the building is a fine display of architecture (as are most of the buildings in the old town). It is near the cathedral and bell tower at the end of stradun. Inside there is a few different exhibits to explore and again, the architecture has... More

There is a lot to see in this museum (probably too much) and the exhibits are very varied from furniture to ceramics and paintings to sedan chairs. It was a perfect place to wonder round on an unseasonably cool April day but I imagine that I would prefer to be outside in the hest of the summer when it may... More

We visited as it was included on the Dubrovnik Tourist Card. Lots to look at, including paintings of famous Dubrovnik citizens, an exhibition about Shakespeare, the original bell ringer statues from the clock tower next door and beautiful architecture.

The Palace is very beautiful, but inside the Cultural History Museum is truly amazing. You feel like you gone through time and landed back to 1600th century. There is a large collection of furniture, ceramics, paintings, different kind of ancient artifacts, bell-ringer statues, but also photography exhibitions about Shakesphere and war time. Highly recommend for visit!

During our visit to Dubrovnik we enjoyed a guided walking tour with a very well spoken and knowledgable tour guide. There were so many interesting buildings, churches and museums within the old walled city of Dubrovnik, it was hard to keep them all straight. The Rector's Palace did not have much to offer inside, but I did find the architecture... More

This is a great spot to visit when all is not sunny and warm, the building itself has a grand central courtyard and the museum has enough to keep you interested for an hour or so, perfect to fill that gap between breakfast and lunch :)

Visited as we hoped to learn more about the history of Dubrovnik. Not so! Lots of interesting Roman coins though. The artwork was very similar, dark and mostly uncredited. The building itself was more interesting.
