Rupe Ethnographic Museum Tours

Part of a quintet of civic museums in Dubrovnik, the Ethnographic Museum celebrates life in a Croatia fast disappearing. In a former life, its present home was a three-story, brick-built 16th-century granary used for storing grain for the residents of the city, but since 1980 the city’s collection of local memorabilia and decorative arts has been beautifully displayed in its spacious galleries. Three of the granary’s grain silos have been opened up and incorporated into the exhibition of tools and household implements on the ground floor.

The museum showcases traditional methods of grape harvesting, wine making, fishing and weaving alongside displays of storage bags made of hide and hand-painted Easter eggs. Highlights of the exhibition on the second floor trace rural life in the Dalmatia region, with displays of colorful peasant costumes, embroidered textiles and hand-made lace shawls.
