If you come to sarajevo this is a must go. It is a very fast way to learn about the recent and horrifying history of sarajevo. It helps you understand the gravitide of what the locals suffered and went through, it changes your view of the entire city.

Well-presented small museum and the real tunnel. Not very crowded, nice short movie. Going into the tunnel really brought it home. Worth about 45-60 minutes.

A must visit. Informative place: by dates and numbers you will be shocked of the size of this war. And by walking in the tunnel you will have a feel of size of tragedy that took place then.

Can't find a better way to spend 15€! Staff is fun and sarcastic about the war, gives it a real human touch to what happened. Going in the actual tunnel makes you understand more what it would have been like to live this. If you want a better understand of Sarajevo during the war this is a must.

A replica of the tunnel dugged during the 90s siege and helped to provide insight of how the ppl coped and survived during the war times. Recommend to go with a local guide so that you are able to understand the history and background. If not it might not be a meaningful trip.

I went to the tunnels with a group of 12 people. We viewed a film and had a guide to explain how the tunnels were built and used. This is an important part of history and I am glad we went. The area is not very large and was crowded. We did walk through the tunnel.

Very interesting to visit, gives an idea of what the war involved for the people of Bosnia. The visit was fairly brief, we spent around an hour here; the staff were friendly and helpful.

If you're interested in the recent history of Sarajevo and the war, this museum is a must-see. To understand the use and importance of this tunnel fully, try to include this visit in a tour, so that you will get the whole story about the tunnel.

Highly recommend visiting the war tunnel on your Sarajevo visit as it is an essential part of the Bosnian War history. Highlights are viewing the historic video that is shown as you enter the museum and been able to walk through a part of the original war tunnel. Essential,eye opening,emotional and educational all at the same time.

For a tunnel that was so important for the defence of Sarajevo, and a siege that puts its scars so deeply on buildings and the people, it is a shame that the tunnel of life is not more than what it is now. No explanation of the war, no stories from veterans, just a bit of text in the museum... More
