We went here and took the tour. It's amazing to know how serious things were during the cold war and what was in place to make sure that we were protected. Definity a place that causes you to think.

Even though the elevator just quit working we had a good topside tour. Interesting place and nice to learn how the sites operated. We wet a bit out of our way to visit and it was worth it.
