In this museum you will understand that even in the end of XX century in Europe is possible to have a war. Not just armed conflict but real WAR! During our stay my 16y son asked lots of questions about this war and as I didn´t know most of the fact, we decided to visit the museum. I believe, most questions got the answers. Only one remained - WHY?

When you ride the cable car to the top of Mt Srd , be sure to visit the war museum . The photos and video presentations will help to galvanize in your mind the horrible bomb attacks that seriously damaged the old city below the site of the museum. Then walk through the streets of the old city again after you descend and appreciate the resiliency of the citizens of Croatia to restore their beautiful city. Be prepared to climb some steps to derive the full effect of the museum experience. It’s worth it !

The Croatian Homeland War confuses me,and visiting this museum helped me better understand the challenges Dubrovnik faced when attacked. There are many pictures, and I often found it difficult to understand the main ideas presented (probably easier to follow for those who have a stronger understanding of the war), but I’m glad I had time to contemplate the war and experience the inside of the fortress.

Visiting this museum is worth the trip to Mount Srd. You can see artifacts and photos of the destruction caused just about 25 years ago. "Man's inhumanity to man" struck a chord with me. This war is still very fresh in the residents' mind and they will frequently reference pre- and post war events. The Croatians are a proud people and thankful for their victory of holding Dubrovnik fro the aggressors.

This tell the story of the Croatian war in the 90's. These people have always tried to deal with life with diplomacy, not war, but yet had to suffer through this terrible time. If you get the chance, visit. It is an eye-opener.
