Long Description:
Named for Canada's 13th Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, the Diefenbunker is a former Canadian military facility located in the rural farming community of Carp, Ontario, approximately 30 km west of Ottawa.

The underground 4-story bunker was capable of withstanding a near-hit from a nuclear explosion. It had massive blast doors at the surface, as well as extensive air filters to prevent radiation infiltration. It was purchased by the non-profit Diefenbunker Development Group in 1998, and officially opened as a museum. It is open every day except for Christmas Day & New Years Day.
