This museum is really interesting! You can see few meters of the war tunnel and you can read how useful and important tunnel was for the citizens of this city during the war!

The "tunnel" is unique. You will be brought back in the fight for life that people of Sarajevo fought in 1992-1996, when nobody seemed to be willing to fight for them. Mind you: be equipped with a map and indications. I got lost and "crossed border". Nobody seemed to know of the existence of the display and people were unfriendly.... More

It is worth to visit this place. Amazing history which Sarajevo's people can tell you and at this tunnel you can see it with your own eyes. Very recommendable.

We loved hearing about the siege on Sarajevo from Neno's Walking Tour and how the secret tunnel saved the lives of thousands of Bosnians as it was their lifeline out of Sarajevo so they could bring supplies and food back into the town during the siege.

Really well done. Detailed Maps show you exactly how Sarajevo was surrounded, how unnumbered they were and how awful the conditions were. Good video montage of what life was like and how the tunnel was built and used. You get to go in part of the tunnel and there was a small museum on site showing you some of the... More

Very interesting despite what the information centres say this is easy to visit by public transport except for the last part where you need to get a taxi. You can do this yourself for half the cost of an organised visit.
