The August exhibition shows the photographic timeline to the establishment of IS from the Iraqu war through to the current time, and also has a section dedicated to the civil war in the Balkans around Dubrovnik. There are excellent notes in multiple languages to describe each photo and the context it was taken and while some of the scenes are... More

A harrowing yet enlightening series of exhibits that show many sides of war. A good way to spend an afternoon. There are temporary exhibits as well as a fixed exhibit that has great materials if you are interested in the history of the war of the 90's. Also some wonderful posters for sale. Great exhibits, very much recommended.

We came here a little unexpectedly, but we did have a look. It is quite disconcerting to see pictures of the city at war not so long ago.

It was a horrifying walk through the photos of the museum. Even though the war was something we talked about in school I was to young to understand or to remember. But seeing the photos and followed what happened during the tour was frightening, this happens of course even now, in other countries, in Syria and people fleeing their homes...

As well as the photos you are provided with a detailed guide to read as you walk around the exhibits which gives you good background information on what you are looking at. The majority of the exhibit was on the Iraq war when we visited but the top floor was related to the Balkans. Worth a visit.

The wife & I visited Dubrovnik for a week in late July and spent an hour or so in here just to get a better understanding of the atrocities carried out during the Balkans war. I was a little surprised that a couple of floors were actually dedicated to the mass migration of people across Europe at the moment but... More

Excellent photographic exhibition. Content is tough to look at. There were two exhibitions on when we visited. One on the break up of Yugoslavia and the other on the Middle East. Both are worth seeing but the Yugoslavia exhibition is relevant to Dubrovnik which was affected so badly in the Balkan wars

Extraordinarily powerful and at times heartbreaking, the gallery is currently running two photographic exhibitions depicting the horrors and reality of war through the faces of people fighting, living and dying. 'The Road to Caliphate' documents Iraq from the 2003 war up to today. Graphic and intimate pictures depict some of the worst and the best of humanity and it starts... More

Very good exhibition of a war photographer's time in Bosnia, Iraq and Syria. The accompanying booklet provides a useful guide behind the work of the war photographer

We made a visit to the gallery during a rainy day in Dubrovnik and were very glad we did. The gallery is excellent and the two exhibitions were very poignant and moving. Don't wait for a rainy day, go.
