This museum can be covered in about fifteen minutes. Most of the exhibits weren't that interesting, but I did enjoy tiny corner that dealt with local food -- especially the traditional stove. The restrooms were nice, too.

This museum is described on my "Museums of Dubrovnik" ticket as the Ethnographic Museum and was No.1 on my ticket. I stumbled across it by accident as I was exploring some of the backstreets of the city to get away from the crowds! If you buy admission to one of the museums, the ticket gives you free admission to the... More

Probably the only reason for visiting is that it is on the day pass,though bear in mind it closes on a Tuesday.The first floor is an exhibition on a nautical archaeological dive.The only interesting part of the museum.Though not without its own dangers as there are unguarded hearings waiting to trip you up.The second floor has farming compliments and the...

So many beautiful pieces in an amazing setting- hand painted pottery from the 16th Century found on shipwrecks in the Adriatic, all inside a granary built during the Dubrovnik Rebublic-16th century, also artefacts and clothing from traditional life in Croatia, amazing view of the city from the top Windows. Definitely recommend

We stopped only because our explorations of Old Town took us past the museum and our Dubrovnik Card offered free entry. What a happy surprise! Hewn out of rock in 1590, this grainery was used for drying and storing imported grain for the city's people, especially in case of siege. Do not miss the explanatory signage near the entry desk....

The museum has nice pieces but very little explanations, which is a pitty. With so many idle employees inside it's a pity that at least they can not be more usefull. If you bought the Dubrovnik card is free so, in this case, it might be worthwhile if you are staying more than 2days.

Set in the 16th c granary Rupe, this is a much less visited museum than it deserves to be. The Ethnographic Museum’s interesting collection provides an opportunity to learn about traditional life and times of Croatia. We looked through grates in the floor for the granaries said to be carved out of stone, went on to view an exhibition of... More

It’s one of the larger museums in Dubrovnik and offers interesting insights in the city’s history. They also have special exhibitions in addition to the permanent samples. It was interesting to see the similarities of ancient garb with Turkish dresses although Ragusa was never under Turkish control. The building itself is also worth seeing although the restauration was maybe overdone... More

We had to wait three days for this museum to open due to Saint holiday and Tuesday closure. I am glad we made the effort to return as it was a beautifully presented museum of cultural life in Croatia. I really enjoyed seeing the various costumes as well as the rural equipment displayed.

This museum is built on the site of the original grain storage silos which were constructed to store grain for the inhabitants of Dubrovnik, and you can still see the silos by looking through the floor gratings as you walk around the museum. The museum itself has a limited number of exhibits spread over three floors (with no lift), and... More
