  • The museum of children of war deviates from standard museums. Here, every subject is told the story of the child. The founder of the museum is a man who himself was a child during the war. You can also purchase a book with written children's stories m.in. in Polish.

  • One of the most beautiful museums and places in this world. It will break your heart and then mend it. The staff is nice and helpful, they offer free audio guides and lockers. A must visit in Sarajevo!
  • The museum is beautifully put together and showcases some very touching artifacts from children during the war. It helped me understand the impact of the was on childhood and reflect on current issues worldwide that have a negative effect on children. I was very touched. It is simple and small yet very nice and really makes you reflect. At the end there is a small play/reading area for children and there are several children’s book about war and conflict. I highly recommend everyone to visit.
