The museum is housed in one of the buildings used by the secret service during the communist period. The museum tells the story of eavesdropping and other methods of observing its own population, as well as the forced labour camps for family members, prisons, executions and those who died trying to escape Albania.
The museum is very similar to the BunkerArt 2 museum, and some of the same victims are featured in both. The history is obviously also the same, and also for the methods and tactics there is a decent amount of overlap. The big difference is that here there are many more numbers, and statistics. The harrowing thought is how few (about 50 if I remember correctly) people worked full time in the secret service, keeping a population of up to 3 million in an iron fist, as well as fighting real crime. There were obviously also paid informers, but even there number was rather small compared to the whole population.
