We were free to enter because we got Dubrovnik card. Without it, you need pay entrance fee of 100 kuna. The palace is not big. It is no way comparable to any palace in France or Italy. There are some exhibitions, showing some paintings, etc. The most impressive is showing some war-time photo. Anyway, 100 kuna is too high.

Go with a guide or read about this wonderful building before you go. It's history is fascinating and the preservation marvellous. For me this was the most interesting of the wealth of things to see in Dubrovnik it also has one of the most extensive and well documented displays.

Longer museum but still didn't learn much. We enjoyed the views from the windows and escaping the sun, but it was rather underwhelming. The architecture is nice, but not a must. No photos allowed.

Dubrovnik is at the edge of being overwhelmed by tourism - particularly from the huge cruise ships which land a thousand tourists at a time into this lovely Renaissance city... but the Rector's Palace is cool and quiet and if there's a concert on, you're in for a treat: a magical setting and artists dedicated to something greater than tourism....

We only visited as we had the Dubrovnik Card, which included free entry. Some interesting exhibits but not high on the priority list if the time is limited in the city

We bought a Dubrovnik day pass which entitled us to walk the walls and visit various museums. The Rector's Palace was undoubtedly the best museum in the city.

We heard a wonderful classical guitar concert by the Dubrovnik Guitar Trio. Parts of the program included a mezzo-soprano. The concert was from 9 to 10 PM in an atrium large enough for about 100 people. There are regular concerts in this venue.

nit is a good place to visit with a guide who can explain it to you. The paintings and exhibits are worth seeing.
