“pushbikes from Amsterdam”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

First floor was pictures of pushbikes - not too sure why. Old clothes and stuff on the next two floors. Fairy clean toilet, and a great view from the window of the city. If bundled, worth a quick look round otherwise not worth an entrance fee.

“Have a head for heights!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Well, when we purchased our 3 museum ticket and I said 'ohhh an ethniographic museum',some ladies behind us asked 'oooh, what is that then'? Well, it's 'how we lived' and I suspect there are many more Croatian school children than tourists that visit. Mainly because it is so starkly hard to find!

You can pretty much rip up the tourist maps - they all quite evily send you up the steepest route and the place is very slightly signed anyway. But it is an up up up route, past the homes of folks who live in the old city and up and up.

And when you get there - well, it seems very sparse inside with view points through the floor into the incredibly deep storage chambers of the old town. A doorway then takes you up, and up and up! At the top floor you must be 5 stories above the old town wall - very high - the views are fabulous - giddy!

On the floors in between you can see original, beautiful Croatian traditional costumes, egg carvings and farming displays.

Get here if you can find it!

“Don't get fooled by the first floor”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The museum is a little way up, and as I remember, it was 4 floors. So maybe not for people with walking difficulties. The first floor is quite surprising as you are greeted by traditional underwear and bras. The upper floors have beautiful traditional outfits, tools, and techniques.

“A Bit of Culture”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

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.

“A little bit of Croatian Culture”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

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