Well done displays. One walks away with a clear understanding of life under Communism, how the area got into it, how they got out of it, and the price they paid. The Red Museum put a human face to the people living behind the "iron...More

The best recollection of Communist Yugoslavia I have read or seen. Excellent museum with easy to read translations and understanding of a time we only read about in history books or remember through the news. Excellent attention to detail and very interactive. It’s a top...More

Unbiased recap in 1-2 hours from a safe enough historical distance. Take time to read all the text, it's worth it. Having lived through last 20 years of it, the exhibition does a good job.

For quite a small space the museum is packed with information and things to see and explore. The history of how communism was established in the country was interesting for me and then the details of how people lived day-to-day and any associated struggles or...More

Thank you for your review! We're always happy to hear someone enjoyed our exhibition and that you had fun learning about our history. Since those augmented reality symbols are mostly hidden around the apartement area, they can be tricky to find. Nevertheless it is like...More

If you want to escape the circus of Dubrovnik and learn about this part of the world before the trauma of the 1990s, this is a really good, even-handed museum about life in Tito’s Yugoslavia. It has a nice mix of history along with period...More

Really enjoyed this new museum in Dubrovnik, loves the immersive concept, the ability to touch things and imagine yourself there. After a brief recap of the political roots of the regime, the central part of the exhibition is the most developed and provides a great...More

This is a small museum that showcases what life was like during Communism. There are many artifacts from the 40's onwards really that brought back so many memories of what I remember as a child. At the start of the tour they explain what communism...More

An interesting Museum located very close to where the major cruise ships dock. A real "blast from the past". Realise how dated and poorly made some of their items were in the communist era. Not really that much to see for your entry fee. Convenient...More
