The Cold War Museum, located at a depth of 65 meters underground. The bunker was built in the middle of the 20th century, it was conceived as a completely autonomous refuge in the event of a sudden nuclear strike. There was a supply of water and food for a long time. The entrance to the museum is a one and a half-ton door, behind which a long staircase begins. Visitors can explore the surroundings of the bunker rooms during the tour and watch a film about the Cold War.

Fantastic emotions, recommend to all
There are lots of options in the menu but most of them aren’t available, it’s expensive and the service isn’t the best one.

Very rare to experience such a museum.
Incredible restaurant 65 metres below ground. Good service and food but the surroundings are amazing. Definitely worth a visit. No charge to visit the restaurant.

We had a tasty lunch in the diningroom 60 meters below street level, whilst listening to the rumbling metro above us. A wonderfull experience. No English guides though, and you can only do the tour with a guide at your side.
Moscow’s Bunker 42 was built in proximity to the Kremlin specifically as the fallout shelter for Joseph Stalin and the USSR government in the event of nuclear attack. For its last three decades it was used as a communication center for strategi.. Read more »c bombers, but in later years was deemed unfit for modern weaponry and declassified. Today it houses a museum, banquet halls, conference rooms, a restaurant and bar, and in stark contrast to the gravity of its former purpose, hosts children’s parties and weddings. Several tours are offered–some focus on Cold War artifacts, some aim to show what life was like during the Soviet era. You’ll see chemical protective suits, masks, Geiger counters, Soviet posters, and a special effects-imitation of a nuclear missile launch (probably not for the faint of heart).
Frankly speaking, I am here reviewing the Experience of the Bunker Tour since I have not got the chance to dine at the restaurant which can be part of the tour as well.

The restaurant atmosphere was very cool and unique, food and drinks were a fair price for the situation and were tasty, also some high quality singing performed by a lady there during our meal.
The bunker personnel treat this place seriously giving stern warnings in areas where photos were not allowed, they treat this place with respect and try to guide tourists to do the same.
In short the visit was a unique and interesting experience that all different types of people will enjoy

Gotten us to walk into a tunnel and locked the door for us to experience darkness and emergency due to bombing. However, its in russian again. Everyone of us just stand there not knowing what is going on. When the lights on, everyone is like 'ok finally its over'.
If can be translated into English, i believe that helps alot. Otherwise, the atmosphere need to be improved.
If you visiting museum you must see restorant. It is stylish and atmosphere place.
