Frequently asked questions

Want to know more? You can probably find answers here.
Why we decided to open a museum?

Museum’s purpose is to respond to the increasing trivialization of war and its consequences. Public discourse regarding armed conflict has become increasingly callous and indifferent, even though here in Croatia we lived through a horrific conflict 23 years ago and still feel today its social as well as economic consequences. We intend to counteract these tendencies through photography, documentaries and informative events. The goal is to have an informed dialogue with visitors and educate them about the devastating consequences of war and the imperative of peace for everyone.

What can you find in the museum?

Museum will exhibit photographs taken by world-renowned photographers, as well as photographs taken by ordinary people. We believe that war needs to observed from various perspectives in order to understand its destructive nature.

Who is behind this initiative?

Museum is an independent initiative that will come to life in cooperation with the War Photo Limited museum in Dubrovnik, and other similar museums in Croatia and the world. Creative direction is provided by Brodoto social impact agency.
