Discover the secret world of nuclear government. 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 bunker today offers a warm welcome to anyone looking for a totally different day out.

Decided to visit here after coming across it one day. Quite easy to find from M6 motorway. Plenty of parking right outside the building & free. We learnt a lot from today however we were a bit disappointed that some of the rooms were closed off. Very cold building so make sure you wear your coats. You are not able... More

There was more to see than expected, with a large number of exhibits on display. Hack Green has an eery atmosphere created by the blinking lights and noisy switches from the working equipment. The museum puts effort into creating an atmosphere, with regular tannoy announcements calling engineers to rooms, bbc staff to the studio and so on. It took around... More

My partner and i visited this place after watching Derek Acorahs Ghost programme that was filmed there, and the history we saw was fabulous and interesting and the documentary in the lower part of the bunker was very moving and highly informative,it made you realise how hard it was for the people who suffered at the result of the A-Bombs....

My grandson thought that it was fun, my generation lived it, I found it terrifying. A lot of static displays of cold war equipment plus videos like The War Game. There is the description of the effect of a nuclear strike on Ellesmere Port falling short obliterating much of South Cheshire. Scary stuff but worth a visit!

Lots of information and artefacts from a particularly tense period of history. A bit spooky if you lived through it! Well worth a visit.

We called today with friends as we were visiting the area. As we entered the car park (which was well signed with brown tourist signs) we were greeted with Tannoy messages which gave a great feeling of expectation. The museum was much larger than we expected with 27 rooms, all very interesting. To make the tour of interest to children... More

We visited as a group of two couples, on a weekend away in Cheshire & were pleased to find an indoor attraction open on a winter Sunday afternoon. Our visit to the bunker was fascinating. There are some interesting displays & a very thought-provoking film to watch too. We thought the 'spy mouse' trail was a lovely touch, even for... More

The bunker itself had some fascinating displays of equipment and posters, with public information videos, radio broadcasts, a mockup of a nuclear shelter during an Attack and a spy mouse trail for the children, so we all enjoyed it and found it very informative. We were prepared for the steps, so knew that taking a pushchair was out of the... More

Well worth a visit if you have any interest in the cold war. I took my 10 year old son who enjoyed it more than I'd imagined he would - bonus 😀 Even had an impromptu visit off goulash the spy cat 😻 just as we were preparing to leave. One complaint could be that the canteen/naafi could be improved... More
