Sarajevo Tunnel Museum
During the Siege of Sarajevo in the spring of 1993, the Bosnian Army built an underground tunnel to link the city of Sarajevo, which was entirely cut off by Serbian forces, with Bosnian-held territory on the other side of the airport, an area controlled by the United Nations. The tunnel allowed food, war supplies, and humanitarian aid into the city, and people out. It also was a way of bypassing the international arms embargo. These days, part of the tunnel that remains standing, and the nondescript house that served as its entrance, has been transformed into a museum dedicated to the war, complete with exhibits and short films.
