  • You have to go to the site, so well worth popping into this tiny museum, and watch the interactive displays. Great value and well worth one hour of your time in the City.  more »
  • The story of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand is thrilling and narrated very quickly at this museum. However, there are not very many articles, so the whole of the visit can be done in 10 minutes.

  • Museum is a single room dedicated to assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie which triggered WWI. Entrance is cheap, staff is helpful and besides the main theme of museum you can see history of Sarajevo during various periods with interactive screen.
  • You don't need to go in here. It's practically free at about £2 to get in, but not really worth it. Single room with a few pieces related to the assassination etc. You can just read the signs around the outside of the building, this is more informative on my opinion.
  • The museum itself is a tiny one so it's quite cheap. There is only one room. You can follow the history on a chronological basis. There are items from that area and description of the items. You can also check a computer with more information not just about this time but the whole history of Bosnia. It contains slide shows with photos as well. The information we received is a little bit few. It could have contain more information about this area
  • A small museum dedicated to the Austro-Hungarian era of Bosnian history at the location of Franz Ferdinand's assassination. Worth it if you're interested in this era of history. They have the clothing (!) of the assassin Gavrilo Princip on display, and if you read German or Bosnian, they have interesting original newspaper clippings covering the assassination.
  • Short, but rich museum. It gives you a great general picture of the austro-hungarian rule in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The exhibitions all have English descriptions. If you're a History enthusiast, you must go to this museum. Crossing the street, you also have the bridge where the prince Franz Ferdinand was killed (a "coincidence").
