Cold War Museum

Set up in a former Soviet underground missile silo to present the history of the Cold War that lasted for five decades, this is the only exhibition of its kind in Europe. The exhibition presents the evolution of rocket technology and samples of armament, and the command room has been restored. Visitors can even go down into the actual shaft to see the complex engineering structure where combat missiles were stored 30 metres underground for almost two decades.
