The return of our ever popular living history weekend. The museum is taking a step back in time and going back to what life was like either side of the Berlin Wall during the Cold War. Keep an eye out for patrolling troops around the Nantwich area on Saturday and Sunday morning as the Bunker welcomes re-enactors and their military vehicles in through its gates.

Across the site, there will be military camps set up giving an insight into how lives were lived by both Western and Eastern forces. The event will be patrolled and checkpoints will have to be passed as visitors are invited to venture between the two sides of the Cold War. Discover the length and breadth of the Cold War, featuring some of the most diverse and interesting Cold War displays.

Our Cold War Living History Weekend is open from 10am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

      Disappointed with our visit. It was freezing cold and the soup was not very warm. Just make sure your food is hot when they deliver it. Only plus was the friendly cat. Read full review

      Found this quite easily even though there was a diversion in place due to roadworks. Very authentic. The nuclear bombs were interesting. I’d never seen those or the interior of one before. The... Read full review
