    Everyone should visit in Mostar
    Definetlly worth to visit. This is the only place that I could find in Mostar to find out and learn about the war in 90s. And I dont need more; this experience will teach you about human destinies, evil, and suffering. We dont need any war, anywhere. Thanks for sharing this museum with everyone. We should learn and keep the message - never to repeat

    My husband and I came here early in the morning and spent at least three hours here (even though it’s small). It doesn’t mean you will spend that long. But it’s worthwhile to come here and hear, see, and watch about the history that happened.

    A Must visit
    This museum, along with the one in Sarajevo, were one of the most chilling experiences of our young families life. My 15 year old was particularly impacted by the absolute evils of imperialism - and the pure and ignorant brutality, of imposing one's nationalistic ego-drive wishes, on the peaceful lives of others. The highlight of the museum...was the actual people themselves; incredibly willing to help, to advise, go guide, to teach...and to also heal together. This is a MUST stop for anyone that abhors the damning impact of imperialism and nationalism as imposed on others - sentiments that should have died with the monarchs of old.

    A must visit
    Such an emotional experience, it definitely hit us. You must visit this museum, everything is explained very well and you get informed about a lot. It's not boring at all, there are is a lot to look at (like videos). The staff was very friendly aswell.

    Difficult but necessary
    A must see. A moving compilation of letters, images, and objects demonstrating the senselessness of war - a reminder that we are all humans on a journey— and we should have peace. Bosnia is beautiful to see, with so much majestic nature, rich culture, and amazing food- but it seems disrespectful to not give time to this dark time in history and acknowledge the impact it has on families today…

    Besuch ist Pflicht, aber schockierend
    Von außen denkt man kaum, dass einem drinnen schockierende Details erwarten. Insgesamt sehr fesselnd/ bewegend und verstörend. Netter Mann an der Kasse. Wir empfehlen es. We would recommend this museum definitely, if you are in Mostar city. It should be obgligat for each visitors of the city - to see what war makes with us. Shame on the human beeing that we still fight each other.

    Harrowing but a very important place to visit.
    The museum is full of factual information & the artefacts & stories of many victims, survivors & witnesses of the conflict. Not only war artefacts but also significant items symbolising people’s identities that were shaped by the war (particularly clothing). Each item has an explanatory note in the local language & English. The voices are haunting but I am glad that they are being heard. The images, videos & stories are graphic. I was horrified & moved to tears by what I saw. Do be mindful of when to visit, it’s hard to imagine anyone not being affected by it. It is harrowing but it is also very important to recognise what this country & its people have been through. As I left, I hugged the remarkable lady who works there (I’m sorry that I didn’t catch her name). She shared some of her personal experiences with me & can only begin to imagine what she has been through. I asked her about working here amongst such painful reminders & she said for her it has established a community. She knows everyone who has provided an artefact or story for the museum & they have essentially created a collective memorial. This stuff can’t just be buried. They understand, support & encourage one another & that must be a very positive thing whilst navigating the lifelong effects of such trauma. I will never truly understand the scale of what happened here & why. It is impossible to comprehend but I felt the need to visit this museum & I’m very glad I did.

    An absolute must
    If you go to Mostar, you MUST come here! It is an incredible representation of such recent, inconceivable history. It is confronting, informative and heartbreaking. It is also vital that we lean about the places we visit. The staff member working there was also fantastic. Thankyou.

    Bosnian genocide
    This museum has caused me to feel many emotions. This is truly one of the many impactful things I’ve seen. I wish to all the people who suffered and died a peaceful afterlife, and for this to never happen again. #NeverForgiveNeverForget

It was such a harrowing and emotional experience connecting with the real life stories of the atrocities that took place during the war. I feel this museum should be an essential stop for anyone visiting Bosnia to gain better understanding of the country’s history and people. Great care has been taken to share family histories in a sensitive and skilful manner. The staff are super knowledgeable and friendly. I’d rate this museum 6 stars if I could!

A must see Museum in Mostar. It shows what happened in Bosnia during the war 92-95, especially focused on things in and around Mostar. It has some tiny rooms, but it is very well organised. Since Mostar is very warm during the summer, inside of the Museum is very good spot to hide.

the museum gives you a clear overview and explanation of all the horrible things that happened in this war. Everything is well presented and it hard not to get emotional looking at the images and the video material. For anyone who is interested in history and this war, this museum is a must.

We were visiting Mostar and came across this museum and felt we should go in to try and get an explanation as to the conflicts which occurred in this area. The museum really helped explain them with pictures and displays that were harrowing showing how the poor people suffered. Would really recommend a visit to anyone in the area

I cannot rate this museum highly enough. Although small inside it is certainly not lacking in content. The man who worked at the museum (who’s name I did not get) was absolutely amazing, he was so welcoming and informative, it was a pleasure to meet him. I was shocked and horrified at the atrocities that were pictured in the museum, some of which were very graphic, so I’d bare that in mind before going. Saying that, it is an important insight into the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to visit.

Anyone visiting Mostar must go to the Museum. It's an important part of the history of Bosnian and Mostar and anyone visiting it must tongo the Museum out of respect for the victims and locals who suffered through this. I never seen anything like this. It just heartbreaking.

This is a museum you cannot miss when in Mostar. It is a very tough museum to visit, especially the films, but it is worth visiting. There is an area for Srebrenica, a section with very heavy stories and a bunker. If you read everything it will probably take 3 hours. It is interesting and very informative.

great, the museum is full of photos and real objects of victims. Each object/photo is explained with an extensive explanation, making everything very clear. Furthermore, there are real statues and drawings. Definitely worth going there.

A relatively small museum that's packed full of objects pertaining to the 90's wars in Bosnia. A few documentary movies that are very impactful and show the visitor a clear picture of the atrocities that happened there. Be prepared, because the subject is very sensitive and you'll probably get very emotional. The best part is that the staff that works there really loves what they do and believe in the mission of this museum: may it never happen again.
