I really enjoyed it here. Spent about 2 hours one evening, some quite disturbing mages but made me think and brought it all home to me.

During my visit, I was able to see the amazing photographs of Narcisco Contreras. Amazing photographs. Good layout of the 2-story museum. Guidebook given to you with purchase which describes each photograph in more detail. The second floor has a video and a few tvs with still photos featuring other photographers. I found these videos to be especially poignant with... More

A very thought provoking exhibition. The series of photos depicting the war in Syria were particularly moving - showing the impact on ordinary people. Other pictures of the 1990s Homelands war reminded how close we are in time and space to scenes of sadness and suffering. A really interesting contrast to other tourist attractions.

Poignant and painful photographs and videos on war and it's effects on people. Enjoyed the current Syrian war exhibit and the photojourno did a wonderful job at capturing the emotions and stories of the people involved. Worth a visit at 40 Kunas.

We saw a photo exposition of the Syrian conflict as well as the permanent collection showing the wars that happened in the old Yugoslavia. Not only were the photos excellent, but they also allow one to approach a conflict from its human perspective and suffering instead of looking at it in a geopolitical perspective.

It's irrefutable that Dubrovnik is as beautiful as it is packed wall to wall with the hustle and bustle of people from all over the globe wanting to take in the sites; but it's well worth stepping out of the heat and taking the time to remind yourself of everything the city and whole region has been through within living...

This museum has captivating pictures of the Syrian and Yugoslavian wars. The pictures are very thought provoking about the savagery of humanity. These pictures are so life like that you stop and think. The only drawback was that the Yugoslavian war section was a bit small. Don't bring young children. Worth a visit. It takes 45 minutes to see it... More

The pictures in the gallery are powerful and at times disturbing. But on our visit the main display featured images from the civil war in Syria. The work was truly incredible, but I expected more about the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. The photography was stark, graphic and emotional. Children under 12 can enter free of charge, but think twice.... More

The terror of war really stuck with us after the visit at the museum and contrasted so much with the idyllic beauty, friendliness we experienced throughout our vacation in Kroatia. Made us think.
