The entrance is hidden, and old signs are left to deter people in the wrong direction. The guard was watching TV in the museum so loud it echoed through the place. I thought he stopped when we arrived but he just went outside to smoke...More

After today, we no longer recommend visiting this place. And we're very sad about this, as we really loved this place. We visited this museum last year and we're amazed by how the history of this museum came to life through the amazing guide, who...More

The lady at the entrance ticket office can be a bit grumpy. I guess that is because even with half a dozen of signs outside, inside and even on the ticket desk probably 9/10 tourists ask if this is the entry to the city walls...More

Were sold a ticket but I had the distinct impression it was closed and we were an opportunistic 60kuna. Corridors once inside were unlit and filled with (literally) rubbish. Mattresses, old TVs (did get the chance to show my 6yr old a CRT that was...More

Wonderful museum for those that enjoy seeing the results of Archaeological work. A little hard to find, and seemingly not visited much--we were the only ones there at the time.

I think it would have been a better experience if Divo had taken the tour instead of the iPad I was given. We Found it a very static exhibit. At times just staring at a graphic exhibit ( picture) while listening to a voice on...More

We probably wouldn’t have found this fantastic museum without a little help from this site, but We found it at it was worth the climb. We got an audioguide on a tablet and it told the story about this early industrial zone and the defense...More

An absolute must if you’re in Dubrovnik. Doesn’t take too long (we took around an hour), is super cheap (30 Kuna/around £5-£6 I think) and is really really interesting. Very well put together museum. Would definitely recommend!

Hi! Like is written in previous answers, you don't need to book tour/sight before. If someone come in the middle of the tour I join him to the current tour and later on is possible to see that "missed" part. Greetings from... More
