Bunker-42 in Taganka - Moscow Underground Shelter Museum
February 29, 2016 13:16


An echo of cold war years — an underground shelter in the heart of Moscow at the depth of 65 meters. Today it is one of the most interesting museums in the city of Moscow.
Bunker-42, aka the Tagansky spare command post was built in the 1950s. It is the former control  point of the air defense system.
All premises of the bunker take the area of seven thousand square meters. In case of a nuclear attack it could act independently. It had a lot of food, water, oxygen, and air purification systems in stock. The staff could keep non-stop watch in the bunker for 90 days.
It has the exterior looks of a usual mansion with windows and a door, but inside it is a concrete cube without separate rooms. Visitors walk a staircase down to the 18th floor underground. There starts an enormous tunnel corridor, the walls of which are coated with metal sheets for blocking electromagnetic radiation. That was covert facilities that nobody could detect.
An excursion takes visitors along confidential corridors of the bunker and its huge halls with communication equipments, ventilating sets, warehouses and other compartments of the command block, and see samples of weapon and various equipment, as well as a model of the first nuclear bomb. A twenty-minute documentary tells about the history of Cold War between two nuclear powers — the USSR and the USA, about creation of the nuclear weapon, and the Caribbean Crisis.
During the excursion visitors are given a chance to imitate a missile operation. For several minutes visitors feel imminent danger. Suddenly light is off and siren starts. Everyone is to put on a gas mask and without panicking proceed to a special room.
All comers can take photographs, touch exhibits and try on various regimentals and safety equipment.
Open hours: round the clock daily
The museum is located at the address: 11, 5th Kotelnichesky Lane, near Taganskaya metro station, Moscow.
