The exhibition itself is incredible – the curator has gathered thousands of personal items and stories of child survivors of the war, but the museum displays only 50 items at a time, rotating every so often.

Impressive and humbling experience, the exhibition is very well done, with impressive photographs and various short documentary films to give you a good insight into the Bosnian war and its atrocities.
The gallery is very well curated and it combines different forms of art and documents to give visitors an insight into the crimes that happened during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A video plays throughout the museum - it contains a lot of fascinating information about all facets of everyday life during the siege - food, money, family, pets, staying warm, even visiting the theatre.
This museum is run by five young survivors and shows very recent history of this beautiful town, very much from the Bosnian perspective.

The olfactory experience was just as fantastic as the service I received; I can therefore more than recommend visiting Tarek and his family's shop!
The smell keeps the memories alive and this shop will give you the glimpse of Sarajevo every time you smell it.
Nice welcoming and amazing handmade artcraft !

A very good small museum to recount the start of the first world war with the assassination of the count.
Important history
People told me that this museum is small but in fact it has surprisingly large historical documents collection!
But they emphasize the fact that Croats cooperated with Nazi to build the puppet government,and therefore,many Serbs were housed to concentrate camp and killed.

Lots of history packed into this museum with exhibits of clothing and documents as well as items used in daily life over the years.
Whoever visits Sarajevo, should not miss this museum - locates in an ancient Ottoman silk trade bedestan - covered market, thus an attraction per se, even without exhibits portraying Sarajevo's past
