The exhibition showed people in their everday life throughtout the conflict.It brought home the struggles & dreadful conditions that the people of Mostar endured from 1993 -1995. Very poignant.

Photographer Wade Goddard, from New Zealand, displays about 50 photos of the 1990s war. English explanations available. Same photographer has a similar exhibition in Dubrovnik so no need to see both. Cost was 3 euros or 6 KM. Photographs document hardships in a town without water, electricity and very little food. This exhibit is located at the Old Bridge in the tower on the west bank of the Neretva River. Not a must see but adds to a better understanding of what the local people endured. Able to take photos.

Sometimes we need to see some less nice things to be reminded of what we need to avoid in the future. Many people from Bosnia came to Denmark during the war, also many good friends, so even though Denmark is far away it is still so close. To see what this beautiful town looked e only 20 years ago touched me greatly and I have he deepest respect for the way the country has gotten back up on their feet. This is a must see for all adults visiting Mostar, it doesn't take long, we just sometimes need to see not to forget.

I wish I could give this place a 0 rating for the way we were treated. We paid 5 Euro to just go within the store. If you want to watch a video about the Bosnian War, that was 10 Euro. First of all, the "exhibit" is basically a shop selling various Bosnian souvenirs and coffee sets and within the store, you'll come across some photos of the Bosnian War. The photos are encased in cheap, plastic cases so there's always some kind of glare to them. There are no captions on the photos explaining anything. As my friend snapped a picture of the former Yugoslavia map that was within the store, a big, tall man who worked at the store started harassing us and demanded us to pay for taking a picture even though we had already paid the fee to enter. He kept on trying to intimidate us and blocked us from leaving the store until one of the store attendants confirmed that we had paid. As soon as we saw an opening to leave, we ran out of there. It was the most frustrating and scary situations I’ve been in. Please do not go here. If you want to learn more about the Bosnian War, I suggest doing a half day tour in Sarajevo, where you will get a much better understanding of the war.

I was very disappointed in this exhibition (I rarely write critical reviews on here). After seeing a few museums and exhibitions in Sarajevo, this felt like a tourist trap. I think many people applaud this exhibition because it does cover such an important topic, not because it is good. It was 3 Euros to enter and the space/ location is great...however the prints and panels look weathered, damaged and captions are non-existent. The money being collected (a fraction) should go into maintaining and updating this collection. If I was Wade Goddard (the photographer) I would feel like this does not do my work or the incredibly important topic it covers Justice.

Entering, you are presented with a seven minute video of the destruction of the Stari Most. This is followed by a very detailed and impassioned speech from the young lady. There is an extensive library, cabinets of Turkish coffee sets , many photos on the wall as well as trinkets and souvenirs.
What makes this store/exhibition so special is the staff. They are beautiful humans and so passionate about what they do and the message they are trying to tell.

This exhibit displays pictures taken by a war-journalist who witnessed the war in Mostar.

The pictures are very interesting and help you appreciate the reconstruction work that had been done,

We would suggest to visit this museum BEFORE visiting the genocide museum of Mostar, as the latter is very more in-depth and if you visit the War Photo Exhibition after, you might not appreciate it to its fullest.

It costs 4 Euros to get in and expect to spend about 30 minutes in there.

The war photo exhibition tells many untold stories of the lives of the people in Mostar. The photo graphs paint a thousand stories. I was surprised that I spent more than 2 hours inside. I met one of the war survivors at the shop and she shared with me about childhood during the war.

This place was a little hard to find, despite being practically under my nose!! It's on the Stari Most bridge, in the tower...you'll enter and go upstairs. It's only a small exhibition but great photos, very moving. Worth a visit...fee is small, maybe €3/6km.

Some beautiful and sad photos from the war. Interesting background and history all displayed on the walls. Amazing location right by Stari Most, tower over looks the city, and somehow makes the photos on display all the more meaningful.

Really glad we went, a somber but important visit.
