4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We thought it was very interesting and the film explaining about the war was good as were all the information posters.

“Take time to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Take your time and walk around from the cable car and enter the museum in the old napoleonic fort built in the early 1800's. Plenty to read and look at giving a view of why the war happened, yes it is biased but read between the lines. The video gives a good viewing of the city that you have just visited being shelled and destroyed. If you are interested in history and have the time read the exhibits although they are at times very detailed. Also take the opportunity to go to the top of the building and you have a clear view of the walled city without the cable car wires in the way.

“Bad trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

To try t understand why Dubrovnik was gunned down is useless and why nobody helped them is also difficult to understand! Destroying culture or at least trying to do it is among the new pervertiation of warfare. Go and visit to understand it.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

This is a very interesting place to spend some time, it will give you some insight as to the events of the homeland war. It has some powerful images and take the time to read the events. A bit one sided at parts, but it is written by Croatians by Croations

“Hidden but worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Museum is rather hidden at the ruins of the fortress at Mt. Srd, but worth a visit still. Has a lot of objects and pictures on display, and actually a bit disturbing to see videos of the city walls (which we just previously visited) being bombed.

Would have hoped a bit more background info with the displayed items though.
