“Probably the best attraction besides city walls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Maritime museum gives a good picture how Dubrovnik became what it is today, why were the city walls built and how it influenced world economical, political and cultural scene. Everything that Dubrovnik is came from the sea.

“Maritime Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

We only visited the Maritime Museum and found it extremely interesting with a really clear history of the city told through great exhibits and an English narrative. We ignored the surly lady and had a great experience.

“Maritime Museum”

We did not visit the Aquarium, but did see the Maritime museum. There are some interesting exhibits, but there is not a lot to see.

“A good rainy day alternative.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had a rare very wet & rainy day in Dubrovnik and this was our choice for the day. It was the only negative experience in 4 days in Dubrovnik when the very surly lady at the counter grunted a welcome at us. We left our borrowed umbrella with the front counter staff and had a good look around the Maritime Museum. When we left our umbrella had been stolen, we were not impressed as the 24 Euro replacement was then required.

The Maritime Museum itself was quite interesting as I am a seafarer and this is an area of interest for Patsy-Ann and I. If I was not a seafarer I might have found it a bit dry and dusty. There are some amazing sub-sea finds and ancient treasures but I don't believe they are displayed to their best advantage.

We did not visit the Aquarium.

“Maritime Museum, great! Aquarium, awful...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

A shame they put these two attractions under the same headline. It makes it difficult to rate. Give the Maritime Museum a 5 and the aquarium a 1.

We found the Maritime Museum very interesting. Lots of fantastic artifacts and learned so much about the history of the city. They did a beautiful job of putting this little museum together and we highly recommend popping in there. It doesn't take long to go through and well worth the visit. Nice little souvenir shop inside also.

The aquarium was actually pretty bad. Big fish in very small tanks, loggerhead turtles in a small space. It was dark and dank throughout and I left there feeling a bit down. We do not recommend the aquarium at all.
