Bentwaters Cold War Museum



Bentwaters Cold War Museum is based in the United States Air Force (USAF) hardened command post on the former Bentwaters airbase which closed after the withdrawal of the USAF in 1993 and is believed to be the only such building open to the public in the UK and Europe.

Plenty of car parking space and is suitable for all ages and has the added benefit of being an ideal all weather visitor attraction.

The new café and shop has proven to be a great success offering light refreshments and souvenirs.
