This is something you should see before or after visiting the Sarajevo War Tunel. It is basically a tribute to the siege of Sarajevo, with real, war-time exhibits. It will bring you to tears and it will help you understand what happened. And the Museum...More

I think my rating for this place might have been higher had I not first visited the Gallery 11/07/95! The History Museum is ok, but it simply can't compare to the Gallery for bringing Sarajevo's recent history into real focus.

Exterior is not promissing, but the exposition is breath taking. Hard to comprehand what the Sarajevans have been trough, but this gives valuable insights. And after visit, just on the other side of the museum is a caffe place dedicate to Tito.Well worth visit
