For over 50 years this vast underground complex, remained secret, hidden on the outskirts of a sleepy Cheshire town. Declassified in 1993, the 35,000 sq ft underground bunker would have been the centre of Regional Government had nuclear war broken out.

The museum and the exhibits are really interesting. It really brings you back to the times of the Cold War and the nuclear threat. You can see how the gov and the emergency services would've replied had a nuclear attack on British soil happened. It also shows you the consequences of nuclear fall-out on the human body (warning: some pics... More

We visited on a whim as we saw the signs while driving home from some where else. I didn't know what to expect and I was surprised at how well this is all laid out and the amount of information available. Practically had to drag my husband out he liked it so much!

At my age of 45, visiting the bunker took me back to my early teens when the cold war was at its height, the information regarding nuclear blast damage and how the early warning systems were in place throughout the country really brought home the real threat the country was under. Took me back watching the adverts on how to... More

This is the strangest place. As someone born in the fifties, I had no idea of what was going on in the Cold War on my behalf. You will learn lots by visiting this out of the way place. It has good parking (even moorings close by for narrow boats on the Shropshire Union Canal) and a nice cafe where... More

We were passing on the canal and saw the sign I had heard of it before so decided to visit despite some of the reviews made Although not cheap many of the displays were excellent especially if you find militaria interesting but what really brought back the feeling of the era was the film , quite long and not for...

I wasn't expecting much from Hack Green when we approached, and I did think the entrance fee was pretty steep...but it's worth it. It's a very unusual museum with some interesting artifacts and displays. The museum really highlights the level of alert only a couple of decades ago and explains the reasons why: gives some real insight. The video they... More

Amazing how much goes on in secret. The bunker sets it all out for you to see all the communication equipment that was used for so many years. A good history lesson for young and old alike.

As I said in my review title it's a must for anyone who remembers the 60s and 70s cold war years,go see for yourself all the history and old communications they were using back then also you get to sit in a shelter during a simulated nuclear attack you can feel the vibration from a bomb blast,watch the public information...

An excellent historical day out. Having lived through the Cold War it was a reminder of dark times and for my son it was a lesson in history and a reminder for the future. It was tastefully done without glamourising or commercialising it.
