Museums in Sarajevo

The museum landscape in Sarajevo is small. Some institutions like the national museum are shut down because of lack of funding and political reasons. Others like the national history museum have not been repaired and you can still see bullet holes on the deteriorating buildings. In others simple things like lightbulbs are missing. But there are still some places worth to see.

Galerija 11/07/1995
The gallery shows impressive pictures from the genocide in Srebrenica. You can watch movies about the massacre and also about the siege of Sarajevo. It is located in the city center.
