Buried 75 feet underground for more than 30 years, Canadians knew nothing of their country's defence against a nuclear attack.
Now the veil of secrecy is lifted and the Diefenbunker is decommissioned. You can explore its underground hallways, sleeping quarters, and the massive vault built to contain all of Canada's gold reserves. Concealed in the village of Carp, this four story subterranean command centre is something to behold.
What you can't see is the Machine Room- the heart and soul of the Diefenbunker.
Shine a light on the Diefenbunker experience by helping to make the Machine Room accessible. Let visitors marvel at the mechanical and electrical considerations that make the Bunker so unique and such an engineering marvel.
Let's inspire a new generation of creative thinkers and use this as a way to teach those -young and old- about a different side of the Cold War. Let's inspire together!
