  • Superb collection of photographs of war on 2 floors: a floor dedicated to a specific photographer/conflict (currently the Yemen crisis), the other essentially devoted to the war in the former Yugoslavia and other countries of the world. The contrast with life, the joy on the Stradun coming out of the Museum is striking.

  • Exhibition is on the first floor (when we visited Yemen civil war), second floor has done the Yugoslavia civil war photo exhibition. Touching photos of the Yugoslavian civil war including Dubrovnik. Ethnic conflict is no perpetrators, victims also are bogged down. Peace now is reminding that rests on a fragile balance.

  • For those who love photography and for anyone who wants to better understand the successive conflicts between the various countries of the region you will find here a very interesting response: a small museum that also so if you visit more intimate and invites to a time-consuming reading of the works.

  • Highly recommend! Very well cutated museum. The brochure system of photo explanations was well thought out. Haven't seen it elsewhere and it really contributed to a nice flow through the museum and a better understanding of the excellent photos. A Must see in Dubrovnik.
  • Very nice gallery. Emotional and instructive. Definitely a must go in Dubrovnik
  • Very sobering, but very interesting. There are a lot of pictures, one temporary exhibit and a permanet exhibit - with a short, two sentence explanation of eacj picture in a variety of languages. Doesn't explain the "why" of the wars but they do show the impact on the people. I thought the pictures of Dubrovnik during the war particularly interesting as you have walked the streets that have been photographed.
  • Very moving & thought provoking gallery, the permanent Yugoslav exhibition gives you a rich journey through history.
  • Amazing expo. When we were there the ground floor showed Yemen and then upstairs was a permanent expo detailing the Yugosavia conflicts. It was absolutely chilling and very detailed. You get a guide book that you read as you look at each photo. Some prints are for sale which felt a bit wrong. I hoped the proceeds of entry or sales of prints go to some of the suffering subjects in the photos as well as the photographers. 50 kuna per person was our entry fee.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
