Arms and war artifacts

Thirty-five kilometres from Canada's capital city, Ottawa, lies a Cold War bunker that is home to the Diefenbunker - Canada's Cold War Museum.
Below a farmer's field Canada's "secret" bunker quietly began operation in 1961. Throughout its 33 year lifetime the Diefenbunker was the Central Emergency Government Headquarters for Canada.
There are many interesting exhibits, as well as the building and infrastructure itself.
