If you are reading this you understand the significance of the place already. On the day we visited there was a car outside replicating the car being used by the Archduke and Sophie the day they were killed, nice touch but I don't think it is permanent? The inside of the museum is very basic and I do not know... More

Tiny and with very little information to offer. The entire collection is in one room and there are very few pieces. The video which shows a re-enactment of the assassination is completely inaccurate, and some of the placards accompanying displays repeat false information. Even at a mere 4 KMs, the entry was over-priced. If you're curious about the Austro-Hungarians time... More

See the place where the fatal shots fell end of June 1914, fired by Gavrilo Pricip. a Plaque tells you of the historic importance of this place, otherwise not really noticeable. Just a Moment of distraction made this the place, where the downfall of historic Europe began - only to end 4 years and millions of deaths later.

The Museum is located in downtown Sarajevo, near Hotel Europe. It is in the building outside which Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie were assassinated in June 1914 - the event which triggered First World War. Life size mannequins of both personalities along with their various artifacts are the highlight of the museum besides other things including the gun... More
