Description This article investigates the activities and curatorial commemorative practices in three separate museums in post-war Croatia. It focuses on Homeland War Museums in Vukovar, Dubrovnik, and Karlovac, and seeks to establish on concrete example the similarities they share in display tactics of the wartime experience. In doing so, this article examines the inherent difficulties these authentic sites of memory have in conveying war- time memory to a post-war audience while also examining the museum’s overall responsibility in shaping civic commemorative practices. It views the commemorative war museum as a powerful instrument which can be used to create public national memory.
