  • Spread over over 4 floors, this is very sparse. It actually makes us think it is a museum about a museum, as there are pictures everywhere of what it could be. what is on display is presented well, ho...  more »

  • Don't be fooled by the reviews here, this museum has a lot of heart and some seriously unique exhibits. This isn't a Natural History museum with dinosaurs, but they do have a fish character that looks like Freddy Mercury. Go in with an open mind, the Dubrovnik card in hand, and either some children or good friends in tow and you'll have a unique time
  • Though small, without much stuff, this is a good little museum. I'm sure the kids in the town love it. Lots of good information and some really creative exhibits.
  • Tourist trap. Don't go in. We had the Dubrovnik card and even so we regretted going in and up the stairs. Not worth the effort of climbing the three floors. The (very few) pieces of exhibit that were not pictures had no explanation whatsoever - just a bird dated from the 1800s with no location of habitat. The parts that had a modicum of explanation were only pictures on the wall taken by divers of the Adriatic sea. Seriously. Don't waste your time.
  • If you have 40 minutes to kill and a Dubrovnik card, worth popping in. Don't think I'd pay. They've made an effort to be creative, but there's not much stuff.
  • This is one of the most uninspiring museums I have never been to, there are minimal displays, and the exhibits are composed mainly of pictures and photos, very little to engross you

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
