  • The war seen from the children's perspective: a museum with a focus on children's experiences during the siege 1992-1995. It is a museum that with few resources and an affordable exhibition makes lasting impression by letting the people concerned-namely the children-then make itself heard. Read the stories for each subject-behind every little story hides a human destiny!

  • A collection of items alongside short stories or memoirs that people have contributed to the museum related to the war. Some are light hearted while others are very heavy and heart breaking. Small, clean and well designed museum that will give you insight into the lives of children caught in the crossfires of destruction and give you something to think about. Cash only ~45 minutes
  • A powerful exhibit documenting what it's like growing up in a war zone. Bring tissues.
  • Really good museum with a lot of great personal stories and artefacts. Deeply moving.
  • This museum is brand-new, and I strongly recommend that every visitor to Sarajevo come to see it. It portrays the reality of war through the experiences of the children who survived it. Some of the stories are uplifting, most are heartbreaking. This museum offers something very unique and almost did not get built, so it is very much worth the trip to visit.
  • A must visit. It is a great place to see, and really worth it. it tells the war stories from children perspective. Wish criminals visit this place to see how many generations they destroyed.
