#1 of 42 in Museums in Odessa
Located inside an old fallout shelter, Secrets of Underground Odessa Museum provides an inside look at guerilla warfare the locals used during World War II. As you explore this secret underground world, you'll slowly step into the city's troubled past and discover how Odessa's partisans and sabotage units hid in these old catacombs. Originally the source of stone used to build much of the city's architecture, in the 19th century this network of tunnels served alternatively as a prison for women and a secret gathering place for the area's gangs. Dress warmly, with comfortable walking shoes. Tours are by appointment only, so make sure you call or e-mail before your visit.

  • Very interesting tour. I took a Russian language group tour but I only speak English, this not a problem as they had plaques in English at each stop. Fee was only $10 paid directly at the museum.
  • Great guided tour through odessa catacombs. The guides were passionate, friendly and chatty. The tour included a little very cool surprise in the end :) pack warm stuff - it's cold down there ;)
