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.

Great photography exposition demonstrating the impacts of war on communities around the world. The museum provides a booklet in the language of your choice that explains the context of each photo. Excellent collection, and definitely worth your time!

Very informative and fascinating display of war photography. Extremely thought provoking with an exhibition downstairs that changes every so often, and a permanent exhibition upstairs about the Balkan wars. It was good to learn more about the history of wars here in the Balkans and internationally. We left feeling sobered but informed, with a greater understanding - the museum wasn't relentlessly sad, but rather showed the multi faceted human stories behind war.

There are 2 floors to this museum and you can get a booklet that gives some background on each of the photos. The upstairs concentrates on the wars in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo in the 1990s.

The photos really pack a punch and it makes for a powerful and emotional visit.

Very difficult to review a museum that captures such an emotive and upsetting issue, that of war.

The photos are absolutely stunning.

It’s as sad and poignant as you’d imagine - especially the images of children.

The recent history of some of the war images is heartbreaking.

It’s a very different activity in comparison to others in Dubrovnik and won’t be for everyone but if you like photography it’s well worth a visit.

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.

We visited this as we wanted to understand more about the Yugoslavian war, but it also contains photos of the invasion of Ukraine, the Syrian war and lots more. Definitely worth a visit; the human face of war and its impacts are very well portrayed. It was so thought- provoking, we ended up discussing what we had seen fit a long time afterwards and left seeing Dubrovnik in a very different way.

Terrific visit of this exhibit on two floors demonstrating the futility of war through different conflicts including Vietnam and here in Dubrovnik during independence. Very interesting facts, take the time to read the stories, that's where it all makes sense. Between 1 and 2 hours to visit.

An excellent photographic exhibition of the horrors of war. The ground floor Ukraine exhibition was incredibly moving. The upper floor depicts Bosnia, Kosovo and the Croatian wars - so harrowing but such an important exhibition to see. The guide book gives useful history if you aren’t informed of the conflicts. Each photo has a background to aid understanding. Well worth the €10 entry. Some prints are for sale.

The Photo Exhibition is a fantastic way to learn more about the history of the Balkans. Pictures gathered from different photographers show the most difficult years that the Balkans went thought during the 80s, 90s and 00s. Easy to follow and short description of each picture to contextualize. The man on the desk was very helpful recommending which photo book to buy after.After the exhibition you just want to keep learning about what happened in that time in this area of the world. Totally recommend it!
