“Very Beautiful and Emotional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The entry to this arena is very beautiful and offers many photo opportunities but once you enter into the room of photos of lost lives during the war, it is overwhelming with faces and lost lives. My husband was able to review and read the details, and since I was already familiar with the historical content but then saw the faces of all the young lives lost, I just couldn't spend much time here. I am proud of the Croatia people for the strength, pride, and dedication is fighting for their country. This place should definitely be a quick stop for everyone come to Dubrovnik, if only to pay our respects!

“Harrowing, moving and incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

What an amazing collection of photographs that document the real face of wars that have since been forgotten in the Western world. Incredibly informative and moving and I wish we had the equivalent in London. Definitely worth a visit, followed by a quiet moment afterwards to collect your thoughts and emotions before returning to the tourist laden streets.

“Moving reminder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This exhibition changes during the year. The one we saw was a reminder of the conflict in former Yugoslavia and the impact of the war on ordinary people just trying to carry on with their lives.

“War Photos Museum/Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Very interesting, educational and somewhat disturbing. Some photos are very graphic. Quite shocking to see what happened to Dubrovnik then and what it looks like now

“Take a tissue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Interesting and informative with some excellent photography, however, the written explanations reduced me to tears in places - needed a stiff drink afterwards.
