Ethnographic Museum RUPE

Photos and description

The RUPE Museum is located in a unique structure - "RUPE Granary" built in the late XVI century in the old part of Dubrovnik. There are 15 large dry wells dug in the solid rock and covered with a special waterproof plaster. They had previously stored the grain. The total capacity of the vintage "Elevator" is about 1,200 m. Today it exhibits the collection of the ethnographic Museum - traditional folk costumes and household items. On the ground floor houses a permanent exhibition of folk art of Croatia.
