Wonderful museum
Aug 2021 • Couples
Amazing overview and history of Albania’s dark times. I found the exhibits so informative, interactive, and educational.

A warning, my husband didn’t love being down in the bunker - he got a little claustrophobic and left early. Some of the exhibits can also be quite disturbing/violent. So if you are sensitive to that kind of thing I would proceed with caution. But this place is definitely worth a visit to learn more about Albania’s history.

Interesting place and so much to learn. Essential to understand Albania
Jul 2021 • Family
Well worth visiting - such an important historical location and so much to learn about Albania's recent history. To visit Tirana and not see one of the bunkers, would be to miss a hugely important piece of history.

Important commentary on authoritarianism
Jun 2021 • Solo
Kudos to Albania for dealing with it’s difficult history in a mature and thoughtful manner rather than throwing it aside and pretending it’s either forgotten or foolishly recalling it with rose-coloured glasses. Tremendous setting and hugely significant message - beware the dangers authoritarianism. From King Zog I, to the Italo-fascists, in addition to the focus of the bulk of the museum which is the communist dictatorship of Enver Hoxha, Albanians unfortunately have a wide breadth of experience to call upon to warn the rest of the world about losing your freedom, however fortunately for visitors it is addressed here.

Some of the translations to English need improvement and others need to be omitted as redundant.

Not worth it.
Jul 2021
Absolutely not worth it. While the bunker shows a brief of Albania's communist and fascist history. The experience itself is not worth it. Particularly not suitable for anyone who is claustrophobic or has breathing problems. Very suffocating.

Powerful, very tastefully done exhibit. Must see when in Tirana.

Visited here with my wife and two pre teen children. We are of Albanian descent, so it’s possible that it was more emotional for us, but I feel that anyone will appreciate the story of what communism did to this nation and her people. Extremely close to Skenderbeg Square. You should absolutely go.

an emotional history
Mar 2021
Besides the wonderful things Albania has to offer in terms of weather, nature, sea, momuments and food, one should know about the scary and painful history during communism (1948-1991)
