The museum of a bunker type aims to show the everyday life of local rebels. Visitors can see there how those people lived and where they were hiding from their enemies, and see their weapons, uniform, authentic photographs and partoitic poems created by rebels.
The bunker room is dug in the ground (2.5 m length, 1.5 m width). It was a hidden place for members of Ukrainian liberation movement to spend the whole winter, with very rare coming out on the surface. The entrance was usually carefully concealed with wood branches and leaves. Even now it's not an easy job to find the bunker in the forest, without a guide. And when visitors finally get into there, they can totally feel the atmosphere of that hidden place.
The liberation movement in Transcarpathian region wasn't as well-organized as it was in Galicia. At the same time, various historical sources provide us with information that locat citizens had been always fighting for the independence of their land. A good example of it is the story of Mykhaylo Shtayer's group in Kolochava. It was active during 1949-1957 and managed to exist and successfully hide for almost 10 years, during which the group members completed various operations in the region.
Now the bunker needs some repair.
As a substitute, there's a new Shtayer's bunker built in 'Stare Selo' museum complex.
