This was quite a fascinating historical education for us. The idea, execution and upkeep for 30 years was interesting to hear.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledable, the tour was informative and quite interesting. It would not hold the interest of younger children, but maybe 10 years up to 110 would find it of interest. Well organized. Worth the time.

Be sure to take the guided tour of the Bunker at the Greenbrier Hotel. It is very interesting piece of American History built during the cold war to house all of Congress if attacked with a nuclear bomb.
