  • Really a nice photo show to visit and learn about the recent war in Yugoslavia. The photos can tell stories better than a guide, even though the guide on phone is provided  more »

  • Love this museum. I had already been to a war museum in Vietnam so the first floor wasn’t that interesting for me. However the second floor taught me so much about more recent wars in Europe which I had no idea about! The photos displayed are thought provoking and gripping. Would highly recommend for anyone interested in history.
  • We really enjoyed visiting this museum and viewing the photographs from from Croatian conflicts and other wars. The special exhibit was on a British photographer who covered the Vietnam war. It included both photos and commentary from the photographer. I don't remember what we paid for entrance, but it was reasonable and definitely worth the price.
  • Very important collection of iconic war photography from conflicts around the world, including places you normally don't see, like Kashmir and Nepal. The gallery is well designed, particularly upstairs, where there is ample seating and a reading area. With admission you're given a handy multilingual guide to the photos. My only complaint would be that African countries were underrepresented (in the galleries - there were more books in the shop) and no WC/restrooms for visitors. After our morning history tour, it was particularly interesting to photos of the bombing of Dubrovnik in the 1990s.
  • Great museum for a small price (70). Really liked that you get a small booklet explaining all the pictures and giving a bit of background information. When we visited there was a temporary exhibition about the Iraq Iran war, great exhibition!
  • Unbelievable, shocking, moving. I think everyone coming to Dubrovnik should see this exhibition. It brought tears to my eyes. The photographs are so beautifully done but heartbreaking at the same time.
