Articles online say this museum closed on 4th Jan 2012. Has it reopened? Did the last two commenters visit it after that date? I saw the museum in 2007 and am now thinking of going back to Sarajevo for the summer to share the experience with other friends. It pains me to see it may be closing!

This is a not-to-be-missed museum for visitors to Sarajevo. We were struck by the fairness and objectivity of the presentation. And saddened to think that one group of human beings could commit such atrocities on another. The section on schoolchildren was particularly moving. I feel blessed to come from a peace-loving nation and my heart goes out to the Sarajevans who suffered so terribly during the siege.

The exhibit on the siege is made up of photographs and items brought in by people rather than found and collected by the museum. Seeing it is an unimaginably moving experience and is one that is fundamental to any small undertsanding of Sarajevo.
