This was very solemn. Very glad we got to see it and the people who fought for their wonderful country. Interesting.

As tourists bowled over by the hot weather and splendid sights of Dubrovnik old town we tend to forget that as recently as 1991 the Serbian army was shelling the city and blockading the port. The BBC and ITV news footage used from 1991 shows the shells and missiles landing, actually hitting the fortress walls. Pictures of about 30+ men of the Croatian defence force who died in the successful defence of the city is a sad reminder of the ultimate price paid to keep this jewel of a place intact for future generations. Well worth an hour of anyone's time, especially in the heat of the day, as the museum is very cool and shaded

It was so said to see 90.000 muslims being killed during the croation war and my wife was so upset she's had to get out it's not for light hearted people so be prepared

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.

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.
