“What history?”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

I visited the museum but found that it only has one exhibition and it doesnt cover the history of the nation which is what you would expect given its name.

I did go around and learn a little but not sufficient to learn about a country.

I always make a point of finding out info about a nation that I visit. As a result of this museum i no the nothing of Croatia. Not good.

“Focuses on the war”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

This museum is really about the Homeland War. It is a very good and informative exhibit, but I had also wanted to learn about Croatia's history before that, see some of the country's art, learn about the folklore, etc. It turns out that part of the exhibit is not on display.

“The Homeland War exhibition”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

This is a little museum but very informative. The current exhibition focuses on the Homeland War, and it has much memorabilia, interesting videos, a lot of datas you can reflect on. The people were ultra nice, giving us chairs to sit in front of the videos, being available for questions. We spent a couple of hours taking it all in, and we found it really worth it.
