We visited here on a rainy day and appreciated the chance to duck inside. It's set a bit off the main street, near the New Muslim Cemetery. Prices had been difficult to find online, so I'll note that when we visited we paid 10 KM per person. The museum also closes relatively early, at least on a Wednesday in late May when we visited - it closed at 4 PM.

We were the only visitors to the museum, and didn't have a guide. We were just happy to look around, but the man taking our tickets basically gave us a private tour. It started with a short movie which we quite enjoyed. We saw plenty of views and souvenirs of the Old Bridge in town, but this was the only place we saw the footage of the artillery fire and the eventual crumbling of the bridge into the river - very moving! It also showed older footage of the original bridge, as well as scenes from its reconstruction and eventual re-opening. We really enjoyed the movie!

The rest of the museum is pretty small, without much by way of English signage, but we were given a nice little tour. We saw artifacts from ancient times, displays of life in the area in more of a medieval period, and a room with photos of a prime minister of Yugoslavia who died tragically in a plane crash. We didn't catch his name at the time but looked it up later - Džemal Bijedić; he was born in Mostar and the museum in in his former home.

Overall we spent about 45 minutes here (plus another 15 when they kindly let us sit in their covered entryway while we looked out at the falling rain) and were happy we'd taken the chance to stop by.

Not huge, but packed with fascinating details - life in Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian and more recent eras, photos, room recreations and a lovely model village.

In August we were the obly visitors, infact the museum is not tourist-friendly at all: not so easy to find, there are no signs which can lead you to it and it's hidden from the main street. There is plate at the entrance but we have got the impression that the staff is not going out of their way to have more visitors. Besides, it is sometimes closed, so check opening times. The visit began with a video about the destruction and reconstruction of the starij most. In the other rooms you can see various kinds of exhibits about the history of Bosnia and Hercegovina and upstairs thare are some rooms which have been recreated with traditional furniture and clothes. The museum is small, so an hour is enough to visit everything carefully.

I wonder if this museum is actually just forced to be open because it received grants as there isn’t much on display apart from a few artefacts ( the receptionist was too unmotivated to explain much about museum, so not even sure if it continued in another building).
We spent no more than 10 minutes there and left feeling like we made a donation rather than paid an entry fee to see something.
Not worth the visit!

I came to this small museum with a guide who had lived through the war in Mostar and provided commentary for the normally-silent short film on the destruction of Stari Most during the war and its reconstruction afterwards. She also explained many of the recreations and artifacts beyond what was on the labels. There are some recreated rooms of life in different places and time periods; photos from during the war; costumes from different locations and ethnicities; and so on. While most of the labels have been translated into English, the labels don't provide much background information. I don't think I would have gotten as much out of the museum without her, but it is an interesting introduction to Herzegovina either way and cheap to visit, so I am giving it four stars.

Museum was long on generalized praises for the natural beauty of Herzegovina and its local lore, but maddeningly vague on historical details and context to explain its exhibits. Museum consists of only four exhibit rooms. Audio handsets worked well for providing English language narration. No elevator, be prepared for stairs.

The Museum of Herzegovina is a compact museum that display artefacts from the local life over the centuries.
It's compact and located in an old building a bit aside from the center.

You watch a 5 minute video which shows the history of the bridge, then you see the museum which is very small but for the price you pay it's fair. A good way to kill 30 minutes.
