This museum pulls no punches about how outraged Croatians were that their beautiful UNESCO world heritage listed city became a war zone, that their people died and suffered as a result of this war and that they were not supported. Set in a stunning fort,...More

This is definitely worth the 30KN entry free. It is an incredibly detailed exhibition with lots to take in. Some of the translation is a bit dodgy so be prepared to sift the information as you read, but on the whole it is a chilling...More

THis place gives a good view of what happened in the Homeland invasion. While it may be one-sided, we are visiting Dubrovnik. We found it very interesting. The cable car up was a bonus.

a well organized self guided tour. Superb photos and a factual history. Excellent value. Even more fun if you hike up there from town and imagine what it was like to have to defend the city

This small museum, is housed in the fort that was the symbol of Dubrovnik's fight in the civil war of the early 1990s. The story is told clearly and in English/Croatian, with pictures/posters and maps. There is also a very well presented video of excerpts...More

I remember this going on but watching the old BBC reports showing the loss and the damage was very thought provoking. I now understand a lot better what happened and just how awful it was. The fort is lovely and cool and there were some...More

No. There is a cable car that takes you up and back. It isn't expensive. The museum is hidden behind the fort on top of the hill.
