As far as European palaces go, this is a very poor cousin to the extraordinary displays in other major European cities. Having said that, it's still worth a visit to view the displays of furniture and paintings that are important to the Dubrovnik region. Entry is free to holders of the Dubrovnik Card. Personally rate this towards the bottom of... More

This palace stands out as it is one of the few places that resisted the bug earthquake. It is different in architecture, and is worth the visit (Both inside and outside)

This was the closest I felt I got to an actual museum, which Dubrovnik seems to struggle in providing (some of us like history and art with our seaside holiday). It sheds some, but not much, light on Dubrovnik's governance and history, and has some interesting, although not original to the palace, furniture and art. For Dubrovnik it gets a... More

In the main square, very nice details, great photo ops, be sure to duck thru the archway as that is the Sea and great views and photos here as well

We spent about an hour wandering around this palace - and while it was nice not sure if it's a MUST do. I think it depends on how much time you have in Old Town to be perfectly honest. The art and rooms are beautifully appointed and the dungeon below is pretty nice as far as dungeons go I guess.... More

nice to look around and probably the best in this town. rooms are very ornately decorated and look out for the 2 hidden prison cells on the ground floor--quite creepy to think they used to have hardened criminals there kept in the dark !!!

The rector's place provides an insight into the history of Dubrovnik and is definitely worth a trip. There is a wide variety of subjects on display and both the inside and outside of the building look amazing.

Myself and a friend visited using our Dubrovnik Day Card on a hot (32C) Sunday on the last day of July. Pros: -No air con, but premises are light and airy. -Great architecture. -Numerous exhibits - behind glass and on display stands. Paintings, statues, artefacts, furniture. Information boards in Croatian and English. -A scene from the TV series 'Game of... More

This is a great museum where you can learn a lot about the history of Dubrovnik. It is a nice escape when it is extremely hot outside. It might be boring to little children, but it is a definite must-see.

It's always interesting to visit an historical building in a foreign county and this was as expected. Several sedan chairs and Georgian architecture. The building is very attractive from the outside.
