At Cold War Museum at the Bunker-42 on 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.

  • Historical place, for those who like to understand the drawbacks of the cold war. Despite having told us that it is today a private attraction, driving tourists during the visit brings us exactly to the Western stereotype of Soviet Russia. Despite being the most expensive attraction we visited in Moscow, was not the best. For those who have interest in the period of the cold war worth the visit (review and if not watched, watch the movie The Day Afterm (1983) to better understand what this place was).

  • I have the cold Museum together with a group of students was attended as I learned Russian with Liden & Denz in Moscow. We had a guided tour in English, which lasted approximately 2 hours. The guide was very nice and explained to us the most important facts, that there is to know to that place. In the short film, which they perform one, you can see the apocalyptic images of the Atomic and hydrogen bomb tests, the Americans and the Russians. The images are breathtakingly shocking and clearly show what such weapons would have a destructive effect. I found it a very interesting experience. Here you'll find a hint of the level of threat, which was present during the cold war.
