Rupe Ethnographic Museum is located in a cultural monument, constructed in the 16th century, which served as an ancient granary. The granary with 15 huge silos (8.5 to 9 meters in depth) served for reserves to feed the inhabitants – what made Dubrovnik the only European city with that type of practice. The original appearance of the ground floor was preserved during renovation, and three holes, architecturally accentuated with rails, have been opened.
Today Rupe Ethnographic Museum shows how locals used to live back in the day. It contains peasant costumes and items depicting life in the countryside which can be found on the first floor. Folk costumes and textile handwork can be seen on the second floor.
Rupe museum is located on the site that offers a fabulous view of the Old Town.
