Eye opening

This museum was spectacular. It really revealed the intensity of the conflict and how the residents were affected. The conflict brought the city to it's knees and outlined the tribulations experienced by the citizenry.

Worthwile visit

A very well curated gallery showing the impact of war on humans in a very moving way.
You are provided with a written guide explaining each individual photo.
The quality of photos was amazing and we were very moved, it gave us an insight why there are refugees all over the world. The shocking truth is wars still happen close to us and in current times.
I wish more people would visit exhibitions like this before making false judgements about people seeking refuge.
Top tip!

Harrowing but important
Sep 2021
This wasn't what we'd planned to do when visiting Dubrovnik but we were 'glad' we visited. Carefully curated photos - harrowing and visceral. I had to leave the collection about the Rohinga muslims as it was too overwhelming.
All in all i would recommend this to anyone who cares about their fellow human beings. It is also a searing indictment on our political systems.

Sobering and Powerful Museum
Sep 2021
When I visited there was a photo exhibition of Rohingya refugees on the first floor and then the Yugoslavian Wars on the second floor.

The Rohingya exhibition was especially heart-wrenching and powerful, showing the unimaginable suffering the refugees go through in order to escape persecution in Myanmar.

The Yugoslav photos and information provided did a great job of explaining the various conflicts to me, so that after three visits to Croatia, I finally had a much better understanding of what happened there in the 1990's.

The photos here are tough to look at, but very eye opening and educational, and leaves their mark on you once you've left.

We found the museum really interesting. It sheds light on the human impact of war in a moving and important way, showing the stories of those worse affected. It’s a must see whilst in Dubrovnik.

Moving museum offering a glimpse into the breakup of Yugoslavia as well as some more modern conflicts - would recommend especially to people unfamiliar with the history of the region.

Great expo, well guided and set in a nice 2 floors visit. Very powerful photos and great explanations of the different wars and conflicts and the people who took part and suffered from it. Some photos are really moving.

Memorable Museum
Jul 2021 • Couples
The museum is a hidden gem in a quiet street directly next to the main square/ street. The photos are very well selected and organised, but above all very powerful. It really brings depth to people's experiences of recent wars across the world. The last exposition was in particular memorable with photos from all sorts of religions, ethnicities and wars right beside eachother. The museum mission is to distribute photos to inform rather to influence political side picking, and it shows. Take your time to enjoy the museum, don't rush through. Also, their web app with some extra details about the photos is great!

Beautiful and powerful photo exhibits
Sep 2020
We're so happy it rained, otherwise we might have missed this incredible photography exhibit. At the time of our visit, the first floor was showcasing an exhibit about the Rohingya refugee crisis in Burma. Upstairs was the permanent exhibit of photos from the multiple Balkan wars during the 1990s. The photos were beautiful, powerful, and thought provoking.
