Ethnographic Museum (Rupe Museum)

Open Wed–Mon 9am–4pm
Od Rupa 3, Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, 20000

The basics

The museum’s simple yet spacious galleries showcase elements of 19th-century peasant life in Dalmatia and other regions of Croatia. Look for exhibits on traditional methods of grape harvesting, winemaking, fishing, and weaving alongside displays of storage bags made of hide and hand-painted Easter eggs. Three of the granary’s original grain silos are incorporated into the exhibition of tools and household implements on the ground floor, while second-floor highlights include colorful peasant costumes, embroidered textiles, and hand-made lace shawls from Dalmatia.

The exterior of the Ethnographic Museum is a popular stop on Dubrovnik Game of Thrones tours, as it was used as a filming location for the fictional Littlefinger’s Brothel. The surrounding streets are also featured as the King’s Landing slum known as Flea Bottom.
