Don't do what we did--not realize it closes at 4pm, show up ten minutes before, almost not get in, and after some pleading, be allowed in (gratis!) to run around frantically trying to see all the amazing exhibits in 10 minutes. They were really nice to admit us, and the exhibit on the Balkan conflicts was so powerful and moving--seeing... More

Nearly two decades have passed since Croatia and Serbia fought. Walking around Dubrovnik, there is little evidence of this. That is why I made sure to visit this well designed and thoughtfully planned museum. The exhibits of still photographs from the late Balkan war and other more recent conflicts are unapologetically raw and gave me a new appreciation for how... More

An amazing gallery. The photos were so moving. Although a binder was provided in which each photo was described, one didn't need this to feel what was happening at the time it was taken. At times I was overwhelmed by what I saw. And it was all so very important to see. I also had the opportunity to visit the... More

A rather somber place to visit, but very interesting. The best part is the video... I wish more of the exhibits had English descriptions or interpretations.

Different attraction compared to everything offered in old town. However it's definitely worth visiting. Found just off the Main Street in old town. Great photography however the caretaker could have been a bit more friendly.

All the pictures were very moving but told a very sad story. This should not be for someone who looked for a week off very hectic work at home and looking for something to relax. However, we ended up here because of the rain and there is not much else to do. I would recommend anyone visiting to have a... More

The current collection on the mina floor has 'highlights' from all of the exhibitions over the last few years, meaning incredible photos from the conflicts... More

The War Photo Museum isn't just about the Balkans War, it's about photos from areas of conflict all around the world. The images are still with me more than a month later. They're beautiful, haunting photographs. A must see in Dubrovnik.

A superb selection of highly educational photos in this slightly out of the way museum. Well worth it.

Places like this are important because they remind us about war. The photos are well-presented. There is a large emphasis on conflict in the States of old Yugoslavia, but this is natural considering Croatia is one of them. For me most chilling were the African photos of child soldiers and very stupid-looking people with weapons. They are unpleasant scum, but... More
