Shows the time period of Albanian suffering under communist regime from post 2nd world war to end of communism in 1991. Great exhibits that set you still and make you ponder that history should be retained as a reminder and lesson to future generations.

If doing tourism in Albania, you may need to go and see this one telling history of local communist dictatorship - bunch of paranoid etno nationalists. Bunker itself was planned to survive from a nuclear blast. Lots of closed spaces. Not for claustrophobic.

The bunker and all the information in it really makes you spend a long time down below. But it would be nice if they make their interactive app work. Now it’s just a nuisance.

I am not typically a museum person, but this place is amazing! Not only is it located in an actual nuclear bunker, but they also have a ton of really cool historical items. Amazing learning experience. Highly recommend!

We didn’t have enough time to cover everything in this museum. However, I find it very interesting. It’s a great way to learn the history of this area and it was why we came here in the first place. Definitely recommend this museum.

Housed in an old bunker built under the communist dictatorship, the museum has 4 tunnels, with each one having a different theme. The latter three deal with policing under the communist regime. There are WCs after the 4th tunnel. A fascinating and well presented museum...More
