We went because it was the oldest one in town. It was very small and not much on display there. We were out of there in 30 mins. It was pretty much a square courtyard and that was it. Abit disappointed.

Very small monastery but a beautiful courtyard inside. We went late morning and it was not too crowded. I would imagine it would be difficult if there was a tour there at the same time. The old and current pharmacies were very interesting as well....More

Just dropped in and were surprised at the the historic significance and design of this site. Relaxing with some great mosaics.

This was a moderately interesting place to pass the time when we ran out of things to do in Dubrovnik. Some interesting history and paintings. Church was being restored, so it was interesting to see the process, but generally it was underwhelming.

This monastery is very much like other ones we have seen. The small museum has a few interesting pieces. The art gallery is interesting and very cool. This makes it a nice break from the heat.

Dominican Monastery is a small museum, with a central courtyard that invited a few minutes of rest. We highly recommend a visit. Our May visit was not with crowds, and no cruise ships were present. We enjoyed pleasant spring weather. Know that Dubrovnik was destroyed...More

Parts of this are under construction and the church is closed. The chapel that I peered into was quite plain. The icons and religious artifacts in the museum though were quite good and I was able to leisurely move around a couple of tour groups...More

I did not go inside the monastery last time I visited because I only got half a day so I was not aware of their opening hours. I checked on the net for you and apparently it is open from 9am to 6pm (5pm in the winter). I... More
