On 3 floors. The video was not working. Displays of local traditional dress and farm equipment. Generally not very exciting.

This used to be a grain storage place now turn into a museum of everyday lives of Croatian . Inside there are farming and fishing tools ( nothing special ) various clothings and a few pieces of jewellery. It is actually quite boring and you definitely could see all these farming or fishing equipment in farms or shipping villages.

If you have lots of time to kill and love going to all types of museum regardless, then it is for you.

This small museum is hardly mentioned in English-language tourist guide books, yet it holds a wonderful collection that helped us deepen our understanding of local culture and traditions.
We enjoyed displays of ornate traditional Easter eggs, embroidery, textiles and various tools. We also learned of cultural context, in which local modern crafts fit, e.g. it was quite interesting to see the way in which traditional South-Croatian silver filigree buttons were used in folk costumes.
Overall – this was one of the highlights of our trip to Dubrovnik.

This gem of a small museum has a great collection of embroidered clothing from the area's many towns. There are also tons of artifacts from area's industries, namely fishing and assorted agricultural activities such as beekeeping. The house is lovely too. There is a room dedicated to St. Blaise, the town's patron saint that is keeping with the nation's narrative of a strong, dominant identity as Christian.
