The Museum "Secrets of Underground Odessa"

The concept of the museum is as follows: starting off on the surface, one goes deeper and deeper into the catacombs – further and further into the history of our city, discovering lots of exciting things.

About the Object

“Secrets of Underground Odessa” is the main museum of the project, located near the central bus station, at the address: 3-b, 2-nd Razumovskyi lane. It is a monument of local significance “Catacombs of the Moldavanka District”.

The museum presents the history of various events that took place in the catacombs of the city. It took us much time and effort to clear the place, organize the route, and design the exhibitions. But we don’t stop for now – we continue implementing new ideas.

What you can see at the tour

  • Stalker – the subject of Post-Apocalypse;
  • Mining – the history of development of technologies and quarrying;

  • A must visit in Odessa showing the war times. The tour was in the summer, however, the weather was pretty cool inside.
