Although its a small museum the collection or photos was superb. Also we were welcomed by our host, whose husband is a war photographer, who told us all kind of extra stories and context about the war. Learned and felt a lot.

This is an excellent gallery, which includes photography from the Balkan Wars by professionals as well as locals. It works because it doesn't take sides and ensures that we never forget such a terrible time in late 20th century European history. I found it profound...More

Great new museum/gallery. The images on show are poignant and in some cases shocking. The commentary that accompanies them really helps to give them context. Quite a small space but we took our time and got value for money. The staff were very friendly and...More

Excellent photo collection that gives a clear perspective on the terror of the war on the 90s, both from professional photographers and through the stories of private individuals. Worth doing!
