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.
