War Childhood Museum

Opened in Sarajevo in January 2017, the War Childhood Museum’s objective is to preserve the memories of children affected by the war in Bosnia and to provide a safe space for discussion and public education on the country’s violent past. The Museum’s permanent collection contains artefacts such as toys, photos, diaries and clothes that were donated by individuals who were children during the war. The Museum also presents video testimonies of individuals who describe their experience growing up during wartime.
