The Diefenbunker was one of the locations for the 2002 movie “The Sum of All Fears” featuring Ben Affleck and Morgan Freeman – which was an espionage thriller based on Tom Clancy’s novel.

Fun Fact

All the toilets inside the Diefenbunker are mounted on a one-inch, hard rubber pad and have flexible connections to the main system, in order to reduce the risk of disconnection.

The Diefenbunker is proud to have been selected as part of the outstanding collection of Canadian Signature Experiences in Canada by the CTC.
