This rather disturbing museum aims to inform the public and visitors of the secret activities of the Albanian state security during the communist era. Found in a non-descript building, this was the headquarters of the Gestapo during World War II, before becoming the headquarters of the Albanian equivalent. The museum goes into depth on the paranoid world created by Enver Hoxha, on the spying and torture and routine surveillance. The similarities to 1984, are frankly quite harrowing. It's a must visit when you are in Tirana, to understand even just a little of what the average person endured here during the communist era.

This is one of the newest museums in the Albanian capital. It is like the Albanian version of Stasi headquarters. There is a fascinating display of documents and the items used by the secret service during the communist period.
