The Cold War (1945-1991) was a 46-year stand-off between the world’s communist and capitalist superpowers, made all the more tense by the threat of nuclear war. It was a thread running through many historic developments such as the Iron Curtain, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the construction and dismantling of the Berlin Wall. This conflict spanned the globe, shaped borders, and raised hopes and fears – and continues to reverberate today.

This exhibition explores the impact of the Cold War on Britain, in the corridors of power, in hidden government bunkers, and on daily life in the home. Discover the real evidence of what happened during this turbulent era of secrets and paranoia. Immerse yourself in the shadowy world of espionage, learn how menacing the Cold War became, and witness the experiences of the generations that lived through it.

Tours will take place on the dates and times listed. Please arrive promptly.
