Create an itinerary including Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum
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.

  • We were on the wall walk. You need to pay extra but I felt it was money well spent. Dating back to the 15th century, so lots of history to learn about.

  • 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.
  • This was awesome! This is a very quiet museum which few people go to but the upside is that we good a personalised guided tour. The foundry was fascinating and was really brought to life. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
