Easy acces, very interesting and well organized. Shows what was used as basics during the cold war and what was needed to get by to run a country from the underground.

I am a bit of a history fan so I found this place really fascinating. It is amazing how big the place is. We went as a family with two younger children and they enjoyed it as well. I would recommend visiting here.

It is a bit of walking. About a good hour tour. Suggest a transport chair so your father would enjoy. Louis.
