This small multi level museum is packed with photo collections by several famous photographers. The subject matter itself is grim, but very well done. For anyone willing to confront the chilling images of war, this is an outstanding collection and well worth a visit. In addition to photos from the war in the Balkans, there are photos from Africa, Lebanon,... More

We decided to go here on a rainy day in Dubrovnik and felt the price was reasonable (40kunas each). It was very moving, shocking and poignant. I would recommend going although not suitable for young children..some of the photographs are very graphic. From Pile gate go up the 4th alleyway on the left.

Stopped in for a visit to get out of the rain and we were so pleasantly surprised! War photos from the past decade taken by photojournalists around the world really opened our eyes, which is the whole point of the exhibit...English booklet given to you at he admission desk, so you could read about each photo taken and go at...

I went to this place on the assumption that it was entirely about the Croatian war of 1991. It wasn't. It showed many pictures of war in Africa which harrowing as they were, was not my reason for visiting. Once you have went through the extensive photographs and eventually get to the war in Croatia they were very moving and... More

amongst the beauty and splendour of Old Town Dubrovnik this exhibition of some the the best war photographers is a shocking reality check of the casualties of war. Simply displayed but with excellent notes in various languages. Well worth the visit

A really extraordinary exhibition. I forgot about everything for a couple of hours. Heartbreaking photographs and a really moving experience. I wish it could come to London as it deserves to be seen by everyone.

My partner loves photography and history, so when we stumbled across this museum in a little alley way, we decided to go through. It is expensive (like everything in Dubrovnik) around $80HK but very extensive, they provide a matching picture book (in multiple languages) that tells the story of each photo you see. There are also a couple of videos... More

Came in here when it started raining knowing it was highly rated by Lonely Planet. There was a special exhibition on the Congo but for me the main point of interest was the domestic wars from the 1990's. These are well documented and there are some thought provoking images and films which graphically illustrate the horror of it all.

The photographs and guide notations are both shocking and matter of fact. The scars of conflict no matter where or when, noble or otherwise, are laid before the viewer in these images and the exhibition underlines the shocking toll that war everywhere wreaks upon individual human beings. The many faces and the misery of the hopeless blur into one. Thought... More
