All through August at the Diefenbunker, as part of Archeology Month, top secret geocaches will be placed on the grounds above the Diefenbunker, ready to be found by geocaching enthusiasts.
A murder mystery fundraiser is being held on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Diefenbunker. And the title?
None other than Murder at the Diefenbunker. This will be a night of murder, scandal and intrigue, set at the height of the Cold War where you are inside the Diefenbunker. Someone is mysteriously murdered and a search over two levels of the bunker is launched to discover who did it, why and how.
Cost for this murder mystery fundraiser is $40 per person.
The Diefenbunker is a four-storey, 100,000-square-foot underground bunker built between 1959 and 1961. During the Cold War, it was intended to house 535 Canadian government officials and military officers in the event of a nuclear war. It served as Canadian Forces Station Carp until 1994.
Today, the Diefenbunker operates as a not-for-profit charitable museum, offering tours and programs.
The Diefenbunker is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Adults cost $14 plus HST while seniors are $13 plus HST. Students are $109 plus HST while youth (ages six-18 years) are $8 plus HST. Children aged five and under are free as is the parking.
