Everything contributes to immerse the visitor in the terrible atmosphere of Sarajevo of the ' 92-' 95, and it does come out confused, tried and moved.

  • It was great it is small but it does embody the true nature of old small bosnian family houses. There are also some items that belonged to the time long ago. I recommend it. It's for sure worth checking out
  • Not very succesfull imitation of European modern art museums, not worth the expensive entrance ticket.
