Široka 7, Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, 20000

The basics

The museum is of primary interest to fans of Marin Držić—a giant of Croatian literature whose comic plays are included on nearly every school syllabus in the country. He enjoyed little career success during his lifetime, but his works were resurrected in the 19th century during the rebirth of the Croatian cultural heritage movement.

The museum is in the Gothic townhouse in which Držić was born in 1508. In addition to the period set reconstructions, visitors can listen to excerpts from his plays through audio-visual presentations. Temporary modern-art exhibitions and contemporary cartoons round out the remaining gallery space.
