Devoted to the Assassination of Franz Ferdinand, this small museum has a collection of newpapers, pictures and other articles associated with this event. Note large but interesting

I think every tourist who wants to see something in Sarajevo first must respect history about the city, for example this topic about how WWI started. Near the Latin Bridge in Sarajevo at June 28th year 1914, Gavrilo Princip (member of the Black Hand secret...More

We learn quite a lot from this small museum with old pictures, newspapers, guns and cloths. It is a very small museum in 30 min you will see everything

This museum is a single room with no significant items of interest. Most of the display cases around the walls contain objects which set the scene for the period - books, watches, hand crafts, clothing, etc - but very little about the context of the...More

Situated adjacent to the Latin Bridge where Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, the Museum of Sarajevo 1878-1918 may be slightly small, but the history it provides is fascinating. We entered after exploring the bridge and Old Town area, as two scholars of history anyway; we were...More

You have to go to the site, so well worth popping into this tiny museum, and watch the interactive displays. Great value and well worth one hour of your time in the City.

Until 1992 this was known as a museum of "Young Bosnia", the terrorist organisation which perpetrated the assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife following the greater Serbian ideology. These terrorists were celebrated as the freedom fighters first in the Kingdom of...More

Whilst only a single room, it is a very necessary addition to the cultural tapestry of Sarajevo and built at the site when Princep assassinated Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand. Highly educational; one learns much about Austro-Hungarian Bosnia from it.

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 28, 1914 led to the global turmoil of the Great War (1914-1918), and arguably after a 21 year break, to WW II. This museum is situated on the corner where the assassination happened, and for that alone...More
