This museum provides a powerful statement, through photographs, of the cost of war. It has a permanent exhibit on the second floor from the 1991-95 war in the region, and two rotating exhibits. When I was there, one was on the Palestinian territories and the 2013 conflict in Gaza and another on conflicts around the world. Powerful.

Such raw emotion in these very unsettling images of war torn populations. Exhibition itself well worthwhile - the curator needs to be a little friendlier perhaps? We only visited as we had heard about him along the kiwi grapevine, but when we mentioned this, he was not keen to converse with us at all. Just a little odd and felt... More

The photos in this exhibit are truly horrific at times. They evoked emotions that I didn't even know I could experience. But, I think that is the point. This museum/exhibit did a wonderful job of educating me on the horrors of war throughout the world, the history of wars in and around Croatia (from the 80s-90s), the importance of photojournalism,...

The images in here will shock - but what surrounds them is an enlightening and sensitively curated museum that provides just enough historical context to let the pictures tell the story. When we visited (April 2017), two exhibitions were on - one depicting life (and death) in the Gaza Strip under Israeli fire, and the other, the permanent collection, following... More

this is a place to remember the patriotic war.the place is small with photos of the victims.it seems they do not give the space or the honor to them,just a space because they "have to". and that it all about the matter

This museum is one that you may want to miss, but you mustn't. The story of the war is well told and is one that is within our lifetimes, causing shock when you think about what happened to the city and how their neighbours were shelling the town and killing lots of people and the buildings were damaged very badly....

I spent the afternoon here with my 23 yr old daughter and got to see this exhibit not only for myself but through her eyes also. The stories and the captured moments of human endurance, frailties and the brutal realities of war have been displayed with humanity and truth. We were born in a country that has not really had...

A great exhibition of the difficulties suffered by the people of the region during wartime. The area covering Dubrovnik while it was under siege was particularly interesting, but the whole museum is amazing! Not to be missed.

If you want to see a different perspective to that of the mass media then pay the exhibition a visit. Harrowing and thought provoking photography
