We took a tour here from the tourist information which went for just over an hour. The tour is very basic but the history is fantastic and our tour was taken by a young guy who had been a child during the siege and was very interesting. A must do

It was worth the train ride from the center!! The tour is very informative and allows you so see how horrible the conditions must have been for these amazing people. There are a few different videos that show all of the different things that were transferred through this tunnel under the airport. It shows food and live animals being transported... More

Pretty small museum so its a quick trip but interesting history of the country. Also close to the airport but sort of far out of town.

We learned so much about the 1992-95 conflict from this tour. Tour guide was great and passionate about the situation.

If you visit this place it will give you a better understanding of the conditions that the people of Sarajevo faced when they were under siege. OK it's info is basic and unpolished but that kind of adds to the charm. Its a thoroughly thought provoking place and I recomend it.

It's an incredible sight to see, but without a knowledgeable guide, you will not experience anywhere near the full impact of this museum or the stories of the siege itself. I'm usually the type to do things on my own rather than pay for guides, but I'm so, so glad I did this tour with a guide, and particularly with... More

Its not a great visit, not enough to warrant the time out of the town away from the other attraction

We went with Insider Tours (located by the Latin Bridge, opposite the assassination museum) and our guide Sambra showed us all the geography of the city and explained the war before we arrived at the tunnel so we could better understand the importance of this narrow tunnel. All the more interesting that it is very recent history.

We went with Insider Tours (locarted by Latino Bridge, opposite the assination museum). The gude was excellent as he had been a policeman during the seige and had actually travelled down the tunnels. A great insight into that time - do not miss it. The tunnel that you can go down is very short but a good guide will set... More

This is no classical museum. There aren't many items on display, but you will get a glimpse on the reality of the siege, trying to imagine what the inhabitants of Sarajevo had to face in the harsh Bosnian winter. It is far from the city centre but you can get there by taking the tram 3 to Ilidža and the... More
