P.O. Box 466 3911 Carp Road Carp ON K0A 1L0
The Diefenbunker is a four-story, 300 room, 100,000 square foot underground bunker, and was meant to house 535 Canadian government officials and military officers in the event of a nuclear war. Shrouded in mystery, the Diefenbunker, nicknamed after then Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, was designed and built in secrecy during the crest of Cold War fear, between 1959 and 1961. The name of the facility was given by a Toronto Star journalist who exposed a story of its development.
Tours, movie nights, birthday parties and day camps. Can you imagine running amok in a retired Cold War bunker, playing spy games? Yes, you really can, at the summer spy camp run at Carp's Diefenbunker for kids 7 to 12.
Volunteers welcome in the areas of special events and fundraising; museum tour guides, both public and educational tours; display/exhibit design and construction; operations and facility maintenance; administration; archive and library.
