“The birth of Croatia.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

A testament to the Croatian young boys who gave up their lives to defend their country. A moving museum that makes you forget your on holiday and shows once again the harshness of war.

“Incomplete”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Interesting collection of artifacts, lots of information about the siege of Dubrovnik in 1991. However, the curating is uneven -- lots of repetition, inconsistent translations. The main problem is that it doesn't provide any context for the attack on the city, and is the least nuanced presentation I've seen of any conflict.

“Interesting but so much bias”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Good explanation of the war and the surrounding context. A bit too focussed on Dubrovnik though and takes a very partisan approach to the history. Understandable given how recent the conflict was but also surprising given that museums at home adhere to a strictly neutral presentation of history (at least in the narrative used to describe the events)
