There’s just small piece of a tunnel, which is open for visit now, information stands only in Bosnian, with no translation, a few more rooms with military staff and youtube videos - and that’s it. I expected more. At least stands could be translated. Entrance...More

You can feel how bad the war is. People made a tunnel to survive. You can come inside the tunnel for 10-15 m and you felt the drama people lived during that nonsense war.

This small museum at the outskirts of Sarajevo sheds light on the tragic siege of Sarajevo and how people survived. It is a sad yet hopeful and thought provoking place.

We had a tall 2.05m guide to explain the 4 year war to us. Impactful, painful, helplessness, the ineffective UN, threw a complex emotion to visitor like me. Highly recommended to all visitors to Bosnia.

I always bring visitors to the tunnel first. To understand the city one needs to know where it has been. Come out of respect for the endurance and resilience of the people who survived the siege. Leave with respect for the ones who did not.
