8. New under-ground Cold War museum opening
Deep in Rold Skov Forest in North Jutland, 200 feet beneath the surface, lies one of Denmark’s best kept secrets. The Cold War bunker REGAN Vest, built in the 1960s. In 2022 it will open to the public, as a museum, designed to convey the stories of its time. The impressive 5,500 square meter bunker, will be the focal point of the museum, where visitors can experience the original interior, from the ministers and doctors office to the dormitory. This is a unique opportunity, as other government facilities around the world, have been stripped of their original inventory. Above the surface is the visitor, and exhibition building, built as four black boxes, designed by AART architect, with among other a virtual activity, that lets visitors experience how the bunker and the surrounding landscape, would look after a new clear bomb. The parcel villa, where the supervisor and his family lived, is also being restored to its 1980 glory, giving visitors a look into the everyday life of that time.
