About
The Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik was founded in 1945 and is housed inside the prestigious palace built in 1939 by Dubrovnik ship-owner Božo Banac. It was designed by prominent Croatian architects Lavoslav Horvat and Harold Bilinić. The Museum also manages the Dulčić-Masle-Pulitika Gallery and the Pulitika Atelier in the Old Town. The Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik has to date managed to assemble a valuable collection of 3,000 artworks of modern art representing South East Europe. The collection covers the visual production (sculptures, paintings and graphics, photographs, videos and art installations) from the end of the 19th century to the present day and its significance goes beyond regional and national levels.

Not a huge museum, but I quite enjoyed some of the modern art and the bronze sculptures outside on the upper terrace.

Thankfully there are information posts accompanying each of the art pieces, otherwise I wouldn’t have had a clue as to what was going on!

In my opinion MOMAD is not a “must see” but if you have an or so to kill it’s certainly worth a visit.

There are bathrooms within the museum, but no café.

This was a great visit and we got to see art from a Croatian aspect and saw some art that we like and some not so much. However we definitely recommend visiting-see the photos.

The building was just beautiful. It was an interesting exhibit. I just don't understand why more of this museum is not utilized.

I've never seen such a poor museum in my life.

Paying almost 20 euros to see 30 photopgraphs and less than 15 paintings all from the 60-70s (without special relevance). You can't call that a modern art museum.
You just can't.

Never felt so ripped off.

The 1939 Banac Palace alone is well worth the visit. It is a beautiful historic building with a terrace garden that houses an interesting statue exhibit (see photos). The modern art displayed inside the museum varies. One of the pieces that stood out to me was, Towards Man by Seder.

I do not recommend to go with children under 3 years old. The absolute silence is required by the staff, there was a woman shooshing us every five minutes (kids weren't screaming, just acting like children their age). Unpleaseant experience, expensive ticket.

We visited here today walking down 150 steps from our Villa Leoni apartment. Their 130 kn admission pass included the Rupe, Maritime and Držića museums which we had not seen. Thankfully, seeing this 1939 Banac Palace was as important as the modern art museum contents as their normal pictured art from the 1850’s was replaced by structural art and photographs. Highlights for us were; 1997 “Wood Bed”, 2019 "Attack on Mr. Naked", the main hall, 1965 bronze “Mother’s Play” and 1990 “Tivoli by night & day”.
Outside there were nice views of the Banje Beach to the Dubrovnik harbor.

Venue in the villa of a early 20th century shipping magnate. Some interesting photographs on the ground floor. Special exhibition Lapis Lazuli by local artist Nikolina Simunovic is OK but I wouldn’t go out of my way.

Expensive, but your ticket will get you entry into several other museums within the city walls.

Not an outstanding museum IMHO.

Standing above the Banje beach the small museum is worth a visit even for the elegant architecture. The walls are ancient but the interior with chandeliers and wrought iron railings represents nostalgic Yugoslavia. The current exhibition Lapis Lazuli by Nicolina Simunovic shows the artists blue works in paintings, glass and collages. Interesting old photographs belong to the permanent collection. With the entrance fee you get free access to 8 other museums and galleries in Old Town, all marked clearly on the ticket.

Exhibits over 3 floors. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and there was enough to keep us inetrested for aorund 90 minutes. Ther are a few interesting sculptures also, on the outdoor terrace with fine views to the sea and the adjacent old town.

Not expensive to visit, and another reason to buy the 7 day Dubrovnil card.
