An impressive exhibition of photo's of the present war in Syria/Iraq and of the Balkan war in the 1990's. They also show short movies of that last war. It gives a good impression of what happenend and the pain of the people. You should visit it.

My wife and I were blown away by how well put together this gallery is. Its a rare form of art to capture the story behind a war, and portray it in such a way that can draw one in and make them want to learn more.

When we visited there was a series of photo's entitled road to the caliphate, looking at the conflict around Iraq and Syria back to the second gulf conflict. The photos were displayed and we were given an information book containing information on the pictures. These were very moving, and generally easy to follow. The permanent exhibition around the Croatian war... More

This museum showcases photos from the Siege of Dubrovnik, as well as wars in Bosnia and Iraq. Booklets are available in a few different languages, which give you a description of each of the photos. It was a moving exhibit and very sad to see the devastation resulting from so many warring factions and religions.

I still do not understand the ins and outs of the war and don't think I ever will but, this small museum helped a bit. The photography on show is very thought provoking, very clever photographers. Well worth a visit.

Found this museum really interesting. They gave you a booklet with the story behind all the photo's some of which were quite graphic with ones depicting the war in Iraq. They also had a section of the Croatian war in the early 1990's, which shows what life was like for the people living there and how badly Dubrovnik was bombed.... More

The great reviews here, and everything else I'd read about this gallery gave me high hopes for a wonderful and moving experience. Alas, I have to say that I was disappointed. The bulk of the museum is taken up by the temporary exhibition which, right now, is a large group of black and white photos of the wars in the... More

A photo exhibit in a lovely building showing different wars/conflicts around the world by a journalist who has followed them. The pictures were amazing, he encapsulates the feelings of the people whose lives are affected by wars and conflicts sometimes in a harsh way and sometimes very sensitively. The video of the Bosnian war upstairs is gut wrenching and very... More

This exhibit is really moving -so powerful but also heartbreaking. It makes you think. The photographs are sunning and there are also excellent notes with the explanations in several languages. Great part of the museum covers is about war in Iraq and Syria. The exhibit on the fall of Yugoslavia is very good. It was moving to see the photographs... More
