  • We did the escape "room" at the Diefenbunker and had a blast! I put room in quotes because you have to escape the floor, not just a room. Group of 11 split into 3 teams (playing together, not against each other). Everyone had a lot of fun. It's a very cool place. I'll definitely be back for a museum tour.

  • Cool place. Some really well done exhibits. Not really for small children (there's a lot of history), and I wished you could see more of the lower levels. The bank vault is very cool. If you're claustrophobic, you may not do well.

  • I love this museum. One of my favorites. Went there many times and always discover something new. Last visit, my daughter had a b-day party there and it was a blast. Highly recommended.

  • Cool place. I heard they have escape rooms at night- sounds fun. Cannot confirm. Interesting history

  • Awesome museum, feels like you're transported right back to the 60s. A bit out of the way but definitely worth it! If you're in a retro mood and want to learn something, this is the place for you!
