The Exihibition was not open, "maybe tomorrow, maybe next week". When we asked at the end of the week - "maybe next month"

There is a small entry fee to go in, but the whole place takes no more than 10 minutes to go round and is a poor state of repair and smells very damp. I was not very impressed.

The view is okay, but it's all over so quickly.

If time is pressed, I would not bother with this.

There isn't a lot to see at Marco Polo's house - it's a bit misleading to call it a house as you can only climb the tower and there wasn't anything else - unless we missed it! That said it must be done as the view is marvellous. I'm not great with heights but managed to climb the stairs without too much difficulty.

There's very little to see here other than the view from the top. However, the view is much better from the adjacent cathedral tower!

First of all, there is no absolute proof that Marco Polo was even born on Korcula.
I will leave this for the historians, BUT making 2 euros off of a handful of posters on the walls and a tower with somewhat decent views is a bit rude.
There are no artifacts of his life, no furniture, books or anything authentic - just reproductions of maps and posters.

The Cathedran I am sure has better views that Marco Polo Tower. So I would have rather done that.
