Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum, Dubrovnik

4.8
#3 of 85 in Museums in Dalmatia
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.

  • It is not so easy to find, and perhaps they should promote it a bit more. If you are a lover of history you will like this place

  • It is the recovery of a part in the walls of the city, where you'll find a foundry. It seems that in earlier centuries was used mainly to manufacture weapons, bullets, etc. for the war, which also sold to other countries in the region. The visit is carried out with a guide who explains very well throughout the tour and what we see. Recommended.

  • 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.
  • Nice people and a good audio tour, but not very big. Great historical artifacts.
  • 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!
  • Amazing place to visit!
  • Guide was very enthusiastic and made this tour really pleasant. Also it was a bit hidden so there were not many other tourists which is definitely a huge plus in this crowded Dubrovnik centre.
