Join us at the Diefenbunker to celebrate Archaeology Month where we will be offering family-friendly activities, including geocaching, a scavenger hunt, a mini archaeology dig, and an artifact handling table. We are also very happy to announce that our popular Machine Room and Outdoor tour will be returning this year.
