Military Museum
At Bunker-42 Cold War Museum at Taganka, a secret nuclear bunker built to survive an atomic strike, you can feel how it must have been for a USSR army communicator during the Cuban missile crisis. This ex-military communications post houses a military history museum and an entertainment complex. The guided tour will take you 65 m (213 ft) beneath Moscow, through secured tunnels and KGB rooms. See models of weapons and communications equipment of the USSR Armed Forces. The highlights of the tour are a simulated missile launching and a bomb detonation. Watch the short film for insight into the Cold War. Note that you need to go down, and back up, 18 floors of steps.

  • The most unusual Museum in Moscow. This is cooler than in films about 007 agent. This is the reality of those times. Anyone interested in cold war times-just right.

  • Two persons 1800 rubles to change 30 euros per person, low 16 plants and you deslomas to upload them, let's say that for that price you could climb the elevator. You put a film and then you go to two rooms more, take you to the restaurant that force you to leave your jacket in the closet and if not you not enter. A real visit swindle, does absolutely nothing new, nothing recommended visit.

  • Honestly I expected something more special, at the entrance to the guide is waiting to have a group of at least a dozen people to gain access to the bunker, you descend to 18 floors below ground (there is no elevator but they make you walk) and arrive in a tunnel that connects to an old fallout shelter underground bunker to Gallery; the whole thing is sealed and given the depth is credible radiation protection until you feel the subways switch over your head so the question is legitimate: the above are? just a few meters! It occurs to me that the radiation passing through the underground tunnel where we can easily get use to but after my observation I have had no reply! Access to the tunnel in the event of an emergency would be through train (subway) directly from the Kremlin to the bunker, here too the perplexities of environmental security not really airtight. The tunnel is designed to dormitories Office and Conference room then in another room there are the fateful "buttons" from where they would be fired the missiles at the United States of America. There is also a nuclear bomb from 22 kilotons (such as that of Hiroshima) visible from the audience and then there's the room. The funny thing is that you can take pictures anywhere but in the Hall where the radio broadcasts date back more than 50 years ago and can be found at every flea market. Final analysis that was a bunker that should would shortly!
