Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum, Dubrovnik

4.8
#4 of 92 in Museums in Dalmatia
Descend the corridors of Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum and explore a well-preserved 15th-century foundry. A great collection of tools, pincers, keys, and canon ball molds lies amid stone warehouses, telling the story of the Republic of Ragusa's firepower program--developed in great secrecy in the period between Venetian and Ottoman suzerainty. An informative and enthusiastic guide will tell you all about geostrategy on the Adriatic, as well as the maritime strength of this small trading republic. The museum can be a little hard to find; look for a wooden door hidden next to a basketball court. You can plan Dubrovnik trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • There is almost a replica of the other towers that guard Dubrovnik from the ground side, and this site is as unsuitable as some neighbors, widely known, so they are less likely to visit. But inside there is an interesting museum dedicated to medieval metallurgy and blacksmithing.

  • We paid for the walk around the fort which included this tower as well, well worth the money and extremely impressive.  more »

  • A hidden gem, quiet as most people were confusing it with city walls. Has good views for the price and a small but interesting museum.
  • Nice people and a good audio tour, but not very big. Great historical artifacts.
