Atomic Bunker Museum
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.
