My partner and I came here after the cable car ride. We weren't hungry so decided to not do the restaurant and this museum was the one of the other options. (I personally didn't fancy the buggy tour) We were both glad that we went to this museum. It offered at lot of history about the Civil War and the... More

Bombarded from land sea and air in 1991 . Indiscriminate damage . You learn quickly how a peaceful city can suddenly find itself caught up in a conflict that had nothing to do with it. And as a result its inhabitants and defenders found themselves ill equipped and trapped. We took a uber minibus up for 100 kunas . Much... More

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!

Emotionally stirring displays of war in recent history. An hour is probably long enough for a visit. Make sure you head to the top of the fort as the views are fantastic. We stayed until sunset and got some great photos.

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.
