The tunnel marks the siege of Sarajevo in 1992-5 during the war then and has its valuable historic and educational value. This was a very good addition to my Balkans trip which was sight-seeing in the main. The local guide gave us a good informative talk in English during our tour and the short documentary film shown on the spot... More

After serving in SFOR in 1999, it is a tremendous privilige o see the undaunted herroism of the Soldiers and Families who built and ran this tunnel Building a tunnel is one challenge, managing and leading whos and what gets moved and when is an entirely differnt task that requires leadership, focus on the goal and commitment. Here you get... More

During a large portion of the 1990s Sarajevo was under siege by Serbian forces who controlled almost the entire city. However, Bosniak loyalists built a tunnel which would secretly supply much of the rest of the city during the occupation.

This small museum's main attraction is seeing a bit of the length of the Sarajevo Siege Tunnel, used to smuggle in supplies and out escapees during the tragic siege in the 90's. The short length of tunnel is what you would expect a tunnel to look like, and the siege itself can be better understood and explored elsewhere. Certainly not... More

Well, if you want to see a small part of the tunnel of Sarajevo, that's the place. But you won't learn much more. Basically, you see the tunnel (25 meters), the house, a small movie without commentaries, and a small museum, without much explanations. I was told a guid would give me some explanation, but she spoke for 3 minutes... More

A place where those interested in recent history like me must go. The eerie atmosphere starts from the outside bullet-pierced walls' and keeps all the way down this tiny tunnel. Try to speak to any of the neighbors nearby. They always have a very interesting history to add to your visit.

This tunnel is a must visit for getting an insight view into what living under the siege from 1992-96 was like. Best with a tour so you can see the movie about the contruction and getting some inside knowledge.

We were picked up at the airport by our host, who provided a guided tour of this museum, en route from the airport. He charged us 10E each for the tour, but I think direct entry is 5KM each. The museum has only recently been taken over by the government, previously it was a family that decided to open the... More
