|About these ratings|
On its website, the War Photo Limited professes its intent is "to educate the public in the field of war photography, to expose the myth of war and the intoxication of war, to let people see war as it is, raw, venal, frightening, by focusing on how war inflicts injustices on innocents and combatants alike." In layman's terms, this museum might be a welcome change from the ancient history on view at Dubrovnik's other top sites.
According to recent travelers, this educational site (though some comment that it is more akin to an art gallery) achieves its purpose; one IgoUgo.com user confesses: "This museum is highly emotional. Make sure to allow yourself time to explore the whole museum, take in the photos, read the descriptions and give yourself extra time to emotionally recover. If you are sensitive to images take it slow and go with someone else. The photos are beautiful and horrifying." The exhibitions focus on modern warfare, featuring lately the violence in the Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The War Photo Limited is right off Stradun in the center of Old Town and only open May through October. In the summer, you can visit the museum between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. every day, but the shoulder months have restricted hours and days. Reported prices have differed, but most predict you'll pay around 30 HRK (or about $5.75). Check out the museum's website for more details.
