The Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik was founded in 1945.The building now occupied by the Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik was originally conceived and built (1935-1939) as the showcase residential mansion of Dubrovnik ship owner Božo Banac, and in 1948 it was converted into exhibition premises and museum.

It was designed by the well-known Croatian architects Lavoslav Horvat and Harold Bilinić in the neo-Renaissance-cum-Gothic style, along the lines of masterpieces of Dubrovnik urban and villa Renaissance architecture (the Rector's Palace, the Divona/Sponza, the Sorkočević Villa and so on).
Through the conversion works, nine exhibition rooms were created, along with two store rooms and some smaller working areas. Together with the large terraces looking on to the sea and its garden, the Museum has 900 square metres of indoor and over 1100 square metres of outdoor exhibition space.
By the decision of The City of Dubrovnik, The Museum of Modern Art has obtained the use of Gallery Dulčić Masle Pulitika at Držićeva poljana 1, Dubrovnik and in 2008 it has obtained the use of Studio Pulitika, Fortress of St. John, Dubrovnik.

The Dulčić/Masle/Pulitika Gallery was opened in a house at Držićeva poljana 1, which after the Homeland War was renovated by the American government, intending it to serve as a memorial to Ronald Brown, American Commerce Secretary, who died in an air crash flying in to Dubrovnik in 1996
It was opened as a venue where the public could appreciate the works of three important Dubrovnik artists – Ivo Dulčić, Antun Masle and Đuro Pulitika.
However, various technical and other reasons prevented it from coming to life in any real sense, until The Gallery became part of Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik.
In the space which is now appropriately equipped for exhibition work, as well as artist whose name the Dulčić/Masle/Pulitika Gallery bears, the Art Gallery Dubrovnik also intends to present other authors and works from its holdings, and thus to familiarise visitors with the things of value that the Art Gallery Dubrovnik and the city of Dubrovnik have in their possession. As well as constituting an important art exhibition spot in the very heart of the old city centre, it is also a chance for providing information to visitors and encouraging them to visit the main building of the museum which is located outside the walls, where they will be able to learn about other artworks, classically modern and contemporary.
