It's hard to grasp just how many events of the 20th century can be traced back to what happened at this spot in 1914 - the assassination of Franz Ferdinand by Gavrilo Princip - and how the ripples of it continue to resonate to this day. For that alone, it's worth visiting.

The museum.... is not the grand spectacle I was hoping for. It's a tiny hall with enough exhibits to pass the time for maybe 15 minutes. An interactive monitor in the middle has more information than the rest of the museum combined, though contrary to the name of the museum, it has information from the whole 20th century to the present day.

Entry is only 4 marks (€2) but there really should be more content here. I hope this will be expanded in the future.

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 Yugoslavia and then by the communist regime. The present museum is less ideologically colured, and it depicts the Austro-Hungarian period and the tragic event which lead to the World War I

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 it is worth approaching. Read the plaque that commemorates the world changing event, free on the outside wall of the the museum, and skip the museum itself unless you know nothing about the assassination, or the war. The museum cost is minimal, around 4 Bosnian Marks a person, but that's about all to recommend it. Instead, go stand on the Latin Bridge just across the street and contemplate how the world altered forever by what took place at the north end of the bridge in the early summer of 1914.

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.
