  • We didn't expect the museum to be so detailed and personal. It was education but also insightful and humbling exhibit.  more »
  • Interesting and informative museum, reasonable price (under 5 EUR for adults). Focuses just on the impact of the conflict on Dubrovnik, not on the conflict itself. Recommend to hike up the hill instead of taking the funicular, it's a very nice walk.
  • One of the recent wars following the collapse of socialism. Very interesting to find out more.
