Museum of Secret Surveillance Reviews
Indrukwekkend museum over de security maatregelen die tijdens het regime werden genomen. Naast bijzondere zaken ook veel herkenbare zaken uit onze eigen jeugd. more »Impressive museum about the security measures that were taken during the regime.

House of Leaves is the newest museum to open in Albania, and probably the most intriguing. It is considered to be the equivalent of the Stasi headquarters of the former East Germany. The leaves have a double meaning: things hidden in woods, but also the leave of books and files, on people. Those curious to see what was hidden in the HQ of the notorious National Intelligence Service, also known as the House of Spies, will leave speechless. The original house was built in 1931 with the primary function of a medical clinic. During World War II, under German occupation, it was used by the Gestapo. Immediately after the end of the war it was regained by the Albanian government and utilised as a security office for investigations. In January 2015, the idea to transform the house into a museum was introduced to the public. It is situated right in the heart of the city, in front of Tirana’s Orthodox Cathedral and close to the National Bank of Albania. The museum was open for the public on 23 May 2017.
Enjoyed my visit here. It's a great place to supplement what you learn at Bunk'art 2. If you go here first, or even on it's own, it may be less enjoyable. Very clean facilities.
