As an American I saw bits of the war on tv in the early 90's, but to see the devastation of what is now a thriving walled city is mind blowing. Businesses bombed or burned out, no power for the residents, and the number of...More

Modern war is as horrible as any. Although we saw it on the telly, it is easy to forget how recent this conflict was. A good full stop on any visit, and cool after a walk up the mountain.

Not fancy but an effective museum and well worth taking the cable car up or taking a hike. Lots of information - audio visual material. Maybe a tour guide would be helpful but also makes a change from hanging in the old city center

If you are interested in learning more about how the 1990s conflict and Croatia’s struggle for independence affected this region then definitely come here. It’s on top of the hill so the views are amazing, and you learn a lot about what was going on...More

We visited this museum after walking up Mount Srd (far cheaper than the cable car and an enjoyable walk if you can be bothered). The museum is basic but a great way to learn about the war and understand a bit more about the history...More

You just read and watch the screens. There wasn't a guide there when we went, but the boards and info are all very self explanatory Do go up onto the roof to see the view.
