This museum is a single room with no significant items of interest. Most of the display cases around the walls contain objects which set the scene for the period - books, watches, hand crafts, clothing, etc - but very little about the context of the...More

Situated adjacent to the Latin Bridge where Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, the Museum of Sarajevo 1878-1918 may be slightly small, but the history it provides is fascinating. We entered after exploring the bridge and Old Town area, as two scholars of history anyway; we were...More

You have to go to the site, so well worth popping into this tiny museum, and watch the interactive displays. Great value and well worth one hour of your time in the City.

Until 1992 this was known as a museum of "Young Bosnia", the terrorist organisation which perpetrated the assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife following the greater Serbian ideology. These terrorists were celebrated as the freedom fighters first in the Kingdom of...More

Whilst only a single room, it is a very necessary addition to the cultural tapestry of Sarajevo and built at the site when Princep assassinated Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand. Highly educational; one learns much about Austro-Hungarian Bosnia from it.

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 28, 1914 led to the global turmoil of the Great War (1914-1918), and arguably after a 21 year break, to WW II. This museum is situated on the corner where the assassination happened, and for that alone...More

We were quite excited to visit the museum and learn more about the assassination that triggered WW1. However, as this wasn't the main focus it was a bit of a let down. We left feeling disappointed, although the staff were friendly.

A good starting point for newcomers to the story of bosnia and the lead up to ww1. As a history teacher I did not learn much that I did not already know. Great and helpful staff and worth the four mark enterence fee

the museum is rather small, but I recommend it for those who want to understand the longtime Balkans' complicated sociopolitical situation.
