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.

We didn't really have Rector's palace on our list of places we needed to see in Dubrovnik until we learned that the Dubrovnik Symphony would be playing there one night while we were in town. So we bought tickets (which were a very reasonable $20 or $30/person) and got to see the inside. It's a bit disappointing really, but maybe... More

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!
