Included with the Dubrovnik pass, this museum highlights the ethnic Culture of the area. Worth visiting if you have the pass, and offers a nice view form the terrace out front

The ground floor with the toys was a little disappointing but upstairs the traditional clothes and metal work jewellery was lovely. Also the farming/country life floor was very interesting but could have had more descriptions of the various artefacts and th

An interesting collection of objects and clothing, which gives some insight into the culture and history of Croatia. However, there is a shortage of extra facts and information. It is a small museum, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Once you have bought your ticket for the Rector's palace this museum is included for the same price, the building is very interesting. There is an explanation of how the building was used as a granary but you have to search it out on the walls. If would be better if they explained how the building was used in the past more with signs to mark the chutes and holes. But the upstairs exhibit was worth seeing also and the walk to the museum was through a quiet part of old town that you might otherwise miss.

It is an impressive building which was an old granary. However nothing tells you anything about this part of its history. The entrance floor had a lot of photographs of bicycles in Denmark (!) That seemed just a way of filling space. The first and second floors has some rural artefacts and costumes. This was all elegantly displayed but with no real information on the lives of the people to whom these items belonged. It seemed that all the costumes were from a very narrow period in Croatian history (late 19th century) and showed strong Ottoman influence. There must have been other influences in history. I could believe someone said "We have these old costumes, what can we do with them" To which someone replied "Display them in an old building and call it an ethnographic museum".
It doesn't work.
