On the outskirts of Tirana, Albania, you will find a museum unlike any other: it is located in an old atomic bunker of the dictator Enver Hoxha. The bunker-turned-museum hosts an exhibition on five underground stories dedicated to the history of the Albanian communist army and to the daily lives of the Albanians during the regime. Visitors can also follow a virtual tour on BUNK’ART’s website. In 2016, BUNK’ART 2 was opened: it reconstructs the history of the Albanian Ministry of Internal Affairs from 1912 to 1991. Visitors will also learn about “Sigurimi”, the political police used by Enver Hoxha to persecute Albanian citizens during the second half of the 20th century. More information on BUNK’ART and a virtual tour can be found here.
