  • Six months after my visit this place still stays with me with its haunting imagery of war, not only the war in the Balkans which of course affected Croatia, but also war in other parts of the world. T...  more »
  • The Museum is impressive. The damage of the city was solid and no longer visible. The young men lost their lives and knew why.

  • 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.
  • Some great photos and stories that really capture what they aim to do. All photos have some words and description about them. Intriguing and thought provoking walk around. Took us just over an hour to read about the exhibition.
  • We sort of stumbled on this exhibit unexpectedly during a rain storm and I'm glad that we did. I'll readily admit that it is a bit weighty subject matter for vacation, but it's an incredibly well done photographic walk through of several conflicts from around the world, including a section on Croatia and the struggles that Dubrovnik found itself in during the 90s. You'll likely not leave with a giant smile on your face and warm feelings in your heart, but it is genuinely worth it to check out.
  • Superb exhibition of war photos from Croatia and across the region. Well presented with decent information. One floor was a temporary exhibition, the other permanent. Some of the content is distressing as you might expect, so not recommended for young children, but for others this will be a fascinating, moving exhibition. Entry was around £6 so decent value. A worthwhile diversion.
  • A fantastically thought provoking collection of photos. I would reccomend it to anyone
