Unfortunately the rectors palace was closed for refurbishment during our visit but the architecture was still worthy of a visit, we managed to get glimpses of the inside through open doors whilst people were working and will be sure to visit next time we are in Dubrovnik.

The Rector's Palace is located between the Town Hall and the Church of St. Blaise and is an outstanding monument of secular architecture. The day we went the building was undergoing renovation so we couldn’t go inside. We still had a nice visit walking around the outside of the building. The Rector's palace is a nice palace mix of Gothic... More

The museum in the Rector's palace was supposed to be one of our top places to visit and the 3-day Dubrovnik card included a free entrance but it was closed due to renovation. Maybe next time.

Closed because of restauration so we were disappointed. It's the only museum who seemed to be very interesting.

Lovely to look at, but unfortunately closed for renovations - got some lovely night photos of the building though and a bride was having wedding photos taken there. Expect it will be stunning when it reopens.

The building had been reconstructed several times by different architects over different periods of time due to damages by earthquakes, fires, explosions etc and thus it is a mixture of the Gothic, Rennaissance and Baroque styles. It is now the home of the history department of the Dubrovnik Museum.

This amazing historic building is very attractive from the outside. It has a very impressive courtyard and interesting dungeons. Great part of the building is a museum. On the first floor the exhibits are rather average. To be honest, I expected much more. The temperature was very high in the exhibition room, because of open windows and no air-condition.No photos...

We didn't know that this place is closed for renovations until May. It is part of the Dubrovnik Card. We should have gotten a discount for not being able to see it!

Its one of many attractions on Dubrovnik. If you visited Greece islands and Malta, you will not be impressed.
