Gives you a sense of where our country was in that time period. The tour was great for older children. All adults should visit.

fascinating tour where we got a really good feel for everything although didn't get inside everywhere. Worth the relatively steep cost, and active military get in free. a full 90 minutes of walking around inside and around the various parts including decontamination showers, cafeteria, mockup bunks, blast doors, meeting rooms.

Part of the Cold War legacy is the revealing of 'The Bunker': a place for the government of the US to retreat to in a nuclear strike. While the majority of the amenities are long gone it is amazing what was built without any knowledge.

We took Amtrak's Cardinal from Huntington to White Sulphur Springs to visit the bunker at the Greenbrier Inn. The tour guide was friendly and seemed very knowledgeable. If you ever want to experience how the Cold War was underground, come here! It's worth getting extra information about the Cold War.
