Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum, Dubrovnik

#3 of 91 in Museums in Dalmatia
Must see · Observation Deck · Hidden Gem · History Museum
Descend the corridors of Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum and explore a well-preserved 15th-century foundry. A great collection of tools, pincers, keys, and canon ball molds lies amid stone warehouses, telling the story of the Republic of Ragusa's firepower program--developed in great secrecy in the period between Venetian and Ottoman suzerainty. An informative and enthusiastic guide will tell you all about geostrategy on the Adriatic, as well as the maritime strength of this small trading republic. The museum can be a little hard to find; look for a wooden door hidden next to a basketball court. You can plan Dubrovnik trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • We were on the wall walk. You need to pay extra but I felt it was money well spent. Dating back to the 15th century, so lots of history to learn about.  more »
  • Part of the wall walk and its highest point. Lots of steps up to each level but the view over the old city is well worth the effort. In crowds it is difficult but in winter easy except that surfaces.....  more »
  • We paid for the walk around the fort which included this tower as well, well worth the money and extremely impressive.  more »
  • A hidden gem, quiet as most people were confusing it with city walls. Has good views for the price and a small but interesting museum.
  • Nice people and a good audio tour, but not very big. Great historical artifacts.
  • This is a hidden gem by the city wall. With 30 Kuna, one can escape the overly crowded Dubrovnik and the city wall. You would have the view of the old city, Fort St Laurence, Minceta tower and bird's-eye view of the Pile Gate. I was really glad that I found the entrance.
  • This was awesome! This is a very quiet museum which few people go to but the upside is that we good a personalised guided tour. The foundry was fascinating and was really brought to life. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
  • Very interesting museum situated under the basketball court. The guide is super enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the foundry. The tour was around 45 minutes long and only for a modest 30 kuna!
