Since it opened its doors in 2014, the Atomic Bunker Museum has earned acclaim as one of Kaunas’ most unique visitor attractions, offering a fascinating insight into the city’s war history. Housed in an authentic nuclear bunker, located 6 meters beneath the ground and built during the Soviet period, the museum’s private collection features over 1,200 items dating from WWI to present-day.
Visitors can marvel over WWI, WWII and Cold War artifacts from radios and transmitters, to medical equipment and air horns. Highlights include a huge collection of gas masks, a number of surveillance devices used by the GRU and the KGB, and the bunker’s own detection devices, used to monitor the presence of radiation and chemical weapons in the environment.
The Atomic Bunker Museum is located on Raudondvario pl in central Kaunas and is open for tours and visits by appointment only.
