The art museum is placed inside of a former strategic nuclear shelter built by the Communist regime, 180 meters underground. Construction of the 'D-0' shelter was completed as the cold war era was coming to end and was never used by the military. It was maintained by the former Yugoslav Army until the war broke out in Bosnia in 1992. During the war, most of the equipment was preserved by the Bosnian Army until 2011, when the communist era relic was turned into an art museum.
