A good collection of folk art and culture that will appeal to the museum buff. Exhibits are well spaced out in the former grain warehouse. There are costumes, quilts and articles of daily life like fishing and kitchen equipment. The museum is up- up ramp streets and up stairs. The museum also goes up. This would be a difficulty for anyone with mobility problems. It is part of the three museum ticket that can be purchased from the Rector's Palace.

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.
