Nice place to visit, offers a great overlook on the city history. Everything is well decorated and arranged. Building it self is very nice, well preserved, view thru the windows on Danube side of the castle is beautiful especially from the terrace on the top floor.
Place to see and visit for nice 2h tour thru the city history.

A must see in the area for history of the 1990’s war. I would recommend for any school trip as far as a part of our history for never again. The top floor is most modern and most moving. The lower floors are further back in time and while well done can be seen many places.

One of my favorite parts of traveling is the serendipity of just sort of bumping into places you didn't know where there. My daughter and I were walking around Vukovar during a river cruise stop and happened upon this amazing museum. We went in without any expectations and were absolutely blown away by the exceptionally well conceived displays, the breadth of the material covered, and the way it felt totally accessible to English speakers. I've been to a lot of museums in my life and this was really one of the best. From information about the geological history of the area to displays on the history of different people who have lived in the area over thousands of years to detailed information about the Eltz estate and family (whose "castle" this museum is in) to an incredible display on what happened in Vukovar during the siege in the 1990s, this museum has it all. I couldn't believe that it wasn't listed in any guide books or on Trip Advisor but apparently it was really badly damaged during the siege and didn't reopen until quite recently. I just can't recommend it highly enough! If I had it to do again, I would spend at least two hours. Unfortunately, the place doesn't have a website yet so it's a little hard to get detailed information. In fact, I'm not even sure of the hours. But if you happen to be in Vukovar, this is the first place to put on your list!

One of the best museums I have ever visited, and I had it to myself. I went from the loess geology to the war with Serbia, with Neolithic pottery, folk costumes, maps of the Eltz estate, beautiful furniture and much more. All the exhibits are in Croatian and English, and admission is only 25 kuna (under $4). The Viking River Cruise I was on had a free afternoon, but did not highlight this gem. You won't be disappointed.

We never expected to see a museum so nice and interesting in a village like Vukovar ! In fact the museum was awarded the title of European Museum of the year in 1976 , naturally in its category .The displays are very well presented and the building housing the Museum is beautiful . Really worth a visit !

I had not expected to find such an impressive collection considering how small Vukovar is. The museum has multiple floors, one for each period of the city's history. You will find objects from the period before the World Wars as well as authentic clothing worn by locals back in the day.

The best part is, as one would expect, on the Independence War period. Moving photographs and chilling remains of objects are on display. Aerial footage of the town during and after the war is displayed.

Well worth a visit

beautiful museum in the center of Vukovar. About the history of the owners the Eltz family but also about the history of the region. it was damaged badly during the war but they did a great job rebuilding it! The movie about the siege of Vukovar, how the city was damaged and how the city was rebuild since than was very impressive!

During a walking tour of Vukovar, my husband and I had an opportunity to visit the Eltz Manor, now referred to as Vukovar City Museum. It is a Baroque palace in Vukovar, Croatia, constructed in 1749, completed in 1751 and renovated during 2008-2011.

According to available literature, the palace suffered substantial damages and destruction in 1991 during the Croatian War of Independence. However, after almost four years of restoration, it was completely restored to its pre-war appearance in October 2011.

The Eltz Manor (Vukovar City Museum) represents a unique museum and gallery, science and multimedia center, which preserves and presents cultural heritage as an element of national identity and the continuity of life in this area. A must see for history buffs.

This tour is the most interesting thing to do in Vukovar! Gorana was our guide and she was great. Her extensive story made us feel like we lived through all that history of the city. It is impresive museum.
