About
The Museum of Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide 1992 – 1995 was founded in July 2016 as an initiative to sustain the memory of all the victims of the war that lasted from 1992- 1995. The founders of the museum themselves are victims who survived the war. Together with young people they have made the museum a reality and keep it working. The museum exhibit contains a variety of photos and personal items that hold the stories of the war victims. The museum staff has given their best to transfer those stories into written pieces that proudly stand next to every item. In order to make the visit more authentic and realistic, the museum presents simulations of a mass grave and solitary confinement. Keeping the memory alive is an important factor in avoiding genocides and massacres in the future. History is something we must remember!

If you want to hear personal stories about the conflict in the Balkans in the 1990's, this is the museum to visit. There are stories from different people explaining what they experienced. The stories are very moving and emotional. I had many extra questions that I asked Alen, the museum guide, and he was able to answer them with in-depth answers and perspectives. Well organized information with many artifacts, would recommend.

Great Museum and so filled with personal things of war victims. People in my country don't learn in school about this and it is very important to come and see. I am from Euskal Herria (Basque) and I am fully aware how much is important to know the real true. In order of my origin I was surprised and touched the guide in the Museum I met and remember for my life Allen is so familiar about my people. Even things which are hidden from public. Our special language, roots, freedom organizations, music, futbola. That's made me a special warm feelings. Honestly recommend to people which travel Balkan and Sarajevo. I'll surely back again.

The service of the museum was very helpful, kind and had all the anwsers, which you will have trust me. You need to prepare youself for what you're about to see, but it is worth it, and it should be seen, rememberd and not forgotten. You can see the films, inteviews, and personal belongings, you can also buy books and movies regarding the entire war. It is painful to see, read and listen about but again I will say it is necessary to see all of it. The museum itself is well composed and fulfilled. You won't regret it.

In school you will learn facts, but here you will (indirectly) learn of horrors of war and what was it for those who experienced it.

The museum is not large, but you can spend all the afternoon there if you choose to read every writing and watch the films. It is very touching, makes you appreciate life and ordinary things you have.

There are several different museums that address the Bosnian War. We visited this one and Gallery 11/07/95 and felt like we covered it pretty well. This museum was very good and well organized. They do a very good job of presenting the information in a way that you can tour on your own. You can spend hours here but you can gain a good understanding in a lot less time. We spent about 45 minutes here.

A museum of which the stories will make you reflect very deeply to the point of crying. The stories are real and some of them are even the experiences of the museum’s staff. It is probably one of the best places to learn about the war in Bosnia at a personal level.

“History is to remember," was stated in the museum's entrance. Many of us overlook Bosnian stories because there was no social media in 1992-1995. This museum collects a lot of tragic and heartbreaking stories and stories of people who are still searching for missing family. This museum is managed by war victims and has a very friendly staff. A must-visit museum !

A very worthwhile visit which brings home the reality of conflict - a must see. Many interesting exhibits, both shocking and moving. Much to be learned.
It was founded by the victims so that such atrocities can and should be remembered. The young staff were very pleasant, helpful and keen to further the museum's aims. Thank you!

This was such an emotional experience. I know some of what went on in the war but to see this museum of atrocities which happened during my adult lifetime was very disturbing.
This should never have happened and keeping the memory of it alive and spreading the message is really the only way we can hope to avoid a repeat.
Please go. leave yourself time to read and watch. Many thanks to the everyone involved in creating this museum.
