Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum (Rupe), Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik Ethnographic Museum (Rupe), Dubrovnik (must see)

The Ethnographic Museum was built in an old building that dates back to the 16th Century. It was built as an old granary. The Republic of Dubrovnik used to keep the national grain supply here at one time, so you can imagine how important it used to be. Interestingly enough, the building was one of few in Dubrovnik that survived the great earthquake practically unscathed.

In today’s time, the exhibits attempt to display what life was like for the common people of the region. You can find displays of old clothing, as well as ceremonial costumes that were worn during festival times. You can also see a classic example of the old Rector’s robes. There is some beautiful artwork on display of the local wildlife. Mainly, though, you will get to see displays of the agrarian culture of the area: examples of local farm tools and implements, as well as equipment used with farm animals, etc. Since this is an old grain mill, you will also find plenty of information on how the culture went about the task of saving grain for food, in order to survive the long winters here.

Why You Should Visit:
Beautifully displayed, small enough to visit in ~90 mins max, and all captions are in English. Staff is knowledgable and friendly and willing to answer questions.
