The museum occupies the building where Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, were assassinated. Look for the plaque commemorating the incident on the outside wall and for the replica of the assassin's footprints in cement inside. Two replicas of the Browning used to assassinate the Archduke and the Duchess, plus the lifesize models of Franz Ferdinand and Sophie, are also on display. See other items from the period, such as garments, medals, uniforms, and publications, many of which are replicas.

  • Obavezno posjetiti
  • This museum is basically just a small room. It is very cheap and stands on the site of the assassination of Archiduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914. It is probably worth a look as it contains a few interesting facts but will not keep you occupied for very long.
  • Very small but nice museum.
  • I recommend a visit, have a lot of original exhibits from the period before the first world war
