Very impressive displays over a large area. My husband and I spent considerable time looking around and viewing some of the videos too. The museum is open long hours, we arrived around 5pm Saturday night and were surprised that it was open until 10pm!

One of the many "Must See" attractions in Dubrovnik. Once you've ridden the cable card to the top of Srd Hill, had a cool drink in the Panorama restaurant and taken your photos of the city from on high, take an hour or two and visit this simple, yet remarkable museum situated on the crest of the hill. Such a... More

You can take the cable car to the top of the hill and enjoy the great view over the old town and the rough backcountry. The museum shows the Croatian view of a dark and sad period in modern European history. Just outside the museum a rocky but easy trail leads you back to the town. The walk will clear... More

We bought tickets to the museum (4 euros) along with our cable car fare and spent about an hour checking out the exhibits while atop Mount Srd. I was astounded, having never heard of the attack on Dubrovnik in 1991 and subsequent four-year war. I'm one of those people who read newspapers religiously and followed international news on TV, including... More

Combine a visit to this museum with a sunset trip up the cable car. The exhibits are clearly one-sided and biased, but based on what I've read, the side they present (Croatian) is a valid perspective.

When we arrived at the top of Mount Srd we headed for the Museum after reading reviews. It is very sad but how they have arranged the exhibition is excellent and very educational. The ticket you receive is actually a postcard which you can bring away as a souvenir.

We took the cable car from old town Dubrovnik and decided to enrich the views from the hill with a cultural visit of the fort built by Napoleon and encompassing the indépendance war Museum. It is strange to be reminded this war was so close in Europe (1991-1995). The fort is almost destroyed but the weapons used at the time... More

We were young adults during the Balkans conflict and couldn't really remember much about it. This museum describes it in a series of photos, maps, and old news footage. It's really informative although is completely from the Croatian perspective so may not be completely balanced. If you go upstairs you can go out onto the roof of the old fort... More
