Bunker Tour

Not the same as the tour prior to repurposing some of the area for data storage but still a once in a lifetime view of real life history from the Cold War

Hard to believe our government ever planned for nuclear war in this way. Also hard to believe the locals kept it a secret for so long.

Well-versed in history, the tour guides take you back to the Cold War Era. You witness actual accommodations and state-of-the-art facilities that were kept at the ready in the event of a nuclear attack.

This was a great tour. We were surprised to learn that much of the "bunker" was actually in use for other purposes, such as exhibitions and trade shows, but no one knew the real purpose of the buildings. Unfortunately, there is a business uses part of the bunker, so no cameras are allowed. I don't see why other than, "..because... More

The tour of the Government Relocation Facility is a truly unique experience that is filled with so much history and information. My husband and I first learned of this facility while watching "Mysteries at the Museum" on the Destination Travel channel. We were in Lewisburg, WV and realized we were only 8 miles away and made room for the tour... More

This is a must-do if you visit the Greenbrier. You will learn about the machinations around the bunker's construction, how it was disguised in plain sight, and go deep into the inner workings. Our guide was excellent and the tour was just about the right length.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute tour this week. The information and tour guides are top notch. No phones or cameras are allowed and they hold all the equiptment for you and give back at the end. The place and history is amazing. Fun for all ages

Our guide, Cathy, was informative, knowledgeable, humorous and could be heard throughout the tour, Perfect for taking you for a walk back in time to the Cold War. It is pricey ($30, $15 for 10-17 years old, younger not permitted) but what at the Greenbrier isn't? Given that now much of the space is used by private sector operations, there... More
