Eye-opening and breath-taking. If you are interested in the history of Croatia and its surrounding countries, this is the place to learn of the dark past faced by their people. The museum also uses the horror of these wars to offer insight into the present ones in the Middle East and Africa. Ultimately, you are offered an education - real,... More

Well presented, communicating the deprivations of modern war without causing nausea. Excellent photos in black and white. You will feel an emotional attachment for these hungry trapped people.

Brought home to me how dreadful the Balkan wars were & how little I knew about the story behind it. A local told us that he fought for over 120 days in the same location of this museum

This is a moving exhibition. The war only ended 20 years ago. The photos were of the city of Dubrovnik under seige. Old Town buildings were blasted with explosions and bullet holes. Amazing how much work as been done to the buildings. The most touching was the photos of the young men who lost their lives in this war.

We found this attraction by accident and decided to look in. It consists of a series of photographs taken of the Old City of Dubrovnik during the siege in the early 1990's. It was rather disconcerting to see photos of the places we had just visited showing blown out roofs and the wonderful sculptures that we had been admiring covered... More

An interesting exhibition that I would highly recommend if visiting Dubrovnik. There are fixed photo exhibits along with several slideshows displayed on large TV screens. Very thought provoking and moving.

I knew next to nothing about the war in Croatia in the 90's. We learned a lot and met an ex-american whose parents were Croatian. She was a font of knowledge about the war and the experiences of the Dubrovnik residents during the seige. This so called "civil" war was brutal and it is important for us to remember what... More

I visited War Photo Limited after a very touching day trip to Bosnia. The photos were heartbreaking but also a clear and truthful representation of the tragedies of any war. The only thing I found a little disappointing was the amount of information and photos dedicated to the Yugoslav war. There seemed to be more information on UK/Ireland and US/Mexico... More

We went into Dubrovnik especially to see this exhibition as it had been closed on the Monday of our first visit. It was well worth returning for. There were three main exhibitions on - one about The Troubles in Derry, one on the border area between the US and Mexico, and one on the Balkan Wars of the 90s. This... More

At first, the images you see don't give the sense that war is the backdrop, but as you go through, you see images that drive home just how devastating war -- being under attack, in particular -- can be. Set within the walls of the Rectory Palace, the exhibit is worth the short time it takes to view these very... More
