The background is that this small town was cruelly divided between Catholic Croats and Bosnian Muslims who had previously lived side-by-side, by the Civil War of 1992-95. This small-scale museum (similar one in Sarajevo) documents the Civil War, with person possessions and stories told by...More

Absolutely necessary to go there. Detailed, moving, some times quite tough. A piece of our history which must be kept in mind (and in our hearts), explained in a way which really makes you feel - not just understand - what happened.

I believe this ‘museum’ (although it’s more of a contemporary interpretation exhibition) should be compulsory place to visit for every tourist visiting Mostar. It tries to give real insights into the awful acts of complete barbarism that went on in Mostar, telling individual stories of...More

I didn't know much about the water prior to visiting the area, this museum was so helpful in educating me on the horror of the war. I'm glad we stopped at the museum, it's a must for anyone visiting Mostar!

A museum that is not very large but tells of facts that must not be forgotten, linked to the fratricidal war between Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia. Unmissable to know the recent history of these countries.

It was absorbing. It left me silent and contemplative for many hours afterwards. At times I was despondent, at others I felt physically nauseous. I don’t think I will ever forget about what I read and saw and I do not want to forget it.

I think it is vital that people read about mistakes that have been made in the past so you prevent making the same mistakes again. Things like this should not happen. Definitely not after worldwar 2. Never forget this tragedy.

We thought that we were actually quite well informed about the difference conflicts in Ex-Yugoslavia when visiting. But this museum thaught us different and we were emotionally deeply touched.
