This tucked away in one corner of the old town. The youth of a nation sign up, are trained and fight to the death for the independence of Dalmatia and Dubrovnik within it. The photos are in black and white; the men are young, most of them boyish. Its sort of like Gallipoli for the ANZACs in 1915 but these... More

This room is dedicated to people who defended Dubrovnik when it was attacked back in the 90s. Many black and white pictures of young people who died defending their town were on display.

The museum wasn't very informational. The walls are just covered with pictures and if I remember correctly; all the information was only in Croatian. However, since I was studying abroad in Dubrovnik, we had our own guide. I really enjoy history but I could have been content with only spending fifteen minutes in the museum.

Has i had mentioned on the description of Old Town this space makes well visible what the town itself went through during the engagement.(from both sides of it(the Defenders and who was attacking it) by exposition of maps,guns and memorial to the fallen.

I assume this is the museum at the top of the cable car? If not that's what I'm reviewing here. We visited this as an option on a day tour of Dubrovnik and area as part of our private airport transfer. We were under no pressure to go in but we were both pleased we did as it gives insights... More

Walked in here almost by accident. Photos on the walls of the men who died during the war. Brought it home how recent it was, people younger than me who were fighting for their town while I was working away in a safe insurance office 20 years ago. Much respect to them.

This is a small but fascinating visit. It brings into perspective the modern history and the personal tragedies of many. Visit without expectations other than to be touched.

I felt that this memorial room was moving and evocative. The war and the heroes are not forgotten and it is moving to look at the photos. It's not for everyone (my wife took one look and decided she'd spend the time on the Placa). If you've read about the war and the destruction in Dubrovnik this memorial will probably... More
