Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fascinating space that houses three separate exhibitions- two permanent and one temporary.
For your modest entrance fee you get some big canvas graffiti influenced modern art (didn’t work for me, but the Uber pretentious and questionably translated guidebook notes were good for a giggle and the air con was superb!)
More impressive was the room dedicated to chronicling the siege of Dubrovnik: a fine example of how to bring clarity, intelligent analysis and compassion to an issue using well chosen images and carefully chosen words. Nothing flashy or hugely interactive here- just well considered evidence and a respect for the visitor’s intelligence.
For me and my medieval historian partner though , the best bit by far was the room which compared various responses to the Black Death and subsequent plagues to recent COVID-19 strategies. Safe to say they had it all covered back then- arguably better than our self-serving leaders managed today). Contact tracing, furlough, contactless payment, (human rand socially responsible) lockdown- you can read about it all in a series of compare and contrast panels (in Croatian and English, with French, Spanish and German speaking visitors offered pamphlets to translate)

I sincerely hope that it was a deliberate act on the ‘Fake Remedies’ panel to juxtapose an image of the 45th President of the USA with a list of quack cure ingredients that included the memorable phrase ‘anal secretions of a beaver’.

Visit and enjoy- decent looking cafe / restaurant situated in the complex and Banje beach is just next door!

A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I am glad we listened to it. We spent a great evening with top quality wine and excellent food. Staff friendly and professional. If you are in Dubrovnik do not miss to visit this restaurant!

Lazaretti is where the exhibition 'Dubrovnik, A Scarred City' is held. We saw banners for this exhibition in the old town and thought that Lazaretti is in the old town. But it is not. It is a few mins walk outside the old town near to the Ploce Gate. You won't see banners of this exhibition when you are Lazaretti (so initially we thought we were at the wrong place). Go down the steps and you will find the exhibition. Just walk in. The exhibition itself is informative if you want to know more about the war.

We saw the sign for this exhibition in the old town but it was really difficult to find any information about location, cost or opening hours online. The location is at Lazareti, located a couple of minutes’ walk outside the old town from Ploce Gate and the exhibition is free. All the doors were open and it’s not staffed so you can just wander in.
The exhibition provides really interesting information about the 1990s attacks on the city, the subsequent rebuilding and UNESCO involvement. The photos and news media videos provided great insight into the extent of the damage and local and international response. It was really educational to learn about the background to the attacks and precedents set re indictments against key military figures for damage to cultural heritage. Definitely worth a look. We spent about 45 minutes. Recommended.
We didn’t see anything else while we were there as it didn’t look like much else was going on.

On Tuesday and Friday at 2130, Lindo perform here with singing and dancing from Croatian tradition. Wonderful. You should book as it gets packed. Price is worth it! Captivating! get your seat at 2100 when it opens to ensure you get a good seat before the coach parties (yawn!) arrive.

Middle Ages warehouse nowadays used as art and kraft quarter. This was a facility where all imported goods were stored for 40 days in quarantine. Simple but interesting architecture outside city walls

Medieval quarantine for travelers. Dubrovnik was one of the first to implement this public health measure. Also, the tan brick and its location right on the Adriatic makes for lovely photos. Interesting and a neat way to get to Banje Beach!

Once a place where in the 15th century all the goods and passengers during the trading were checked as this place was a quarantine, today you can buy local souvenires, listen to rock, indie and jazz music, and also attend some of the plays or exhibitions. If you're looking for a good party, this is where the locals go. So, an alternative artistic side of Dubrovnik where locals show their story to the visitors.
