This palace is beautiful inside, and there is room after room of things to see. There are ancient iron chests, the original striking knights from the clock towers, a collection of apothecary bottles and jars, photographs from the war in 1990-91, furniture and all sorts. Well worth a visit.

Our guidebook said it was sterile inside, but we found the place fascinating. If you're interested in medieval to renaissance public architecture, this is a good place to visit. It has a number of rooms and rewards careful viewing.

What a way to end our day! Dinner followed by a fantastic concert by the DSO at Rector's Palace. I would recommend a visit. 5 Star entertainment!

We were fortunate enough to have a few days in this wonderful place & we plan on returning one day! We ventured out to the 'old town' centre, entering inside the gated fort, there the cobble stone streets were bustling with activity. As we strolled along the many streets, the ancient buildings were illuminated, accenting their beauty ! The local... More

The Cultural-Historical Museum is located in the Rector's Palace. The entrance fee is 40 kuna or covered by the Dubrovnik Tourist Card if you have purchased one. A Gothic and Renaissance palace that with many repairs and reconstructions has an unique mix of styles. The palace was the office and residence of the Rector and also the seat of government....

If you get a chance experience the classical concert held at Rector's Palace. The place itself is not much to it but a stunning arched column and open air court that the concert is held. We heard a chamber orchestra with spectacular acoustic. The price of the tickets are any where from 50 to 200, 300 kuna. But if you... More

The Rectors Palace is situated at the end of the Stradun and is well worth a visit. The museum is well laid out so overall the visit is not too arduous. The exhibits are well presented. The cultural museum is located inside the palace and is very interesting. This attraction is included in the Dubrovnik card. Allow about an hour... More

This was included in our Dubrovnik pass. Very good museum that also included a section showing photographs of the extensive damage to Dubrovnik in the recent homeland war. Well worth a visit.

Nice quick tour. Interesting to hear how their government worked before Napoleon. Actually may be a good idea for today. Not a lot to see. Some items in the palace are original and some are reproductions. Allow an hour or less. There is a fee.

In our travel guide, this was recommend as one of the top places to visit, but I did no way feel that this was the case. The entry fee wasn't included in the price of the Dubrovnik card (I really think it should be). That being said, I go on holiday to immerse myself in new cultures and visiting this... More
