Easter at the Diefenbunker
The secret is out… the Easter Bunny will be making a stop at the Diefenbunker Museum over Easter weekend! You’re invited to explore the Bunker with a unique twist on your typical Easter Egg Hunt.
In preparation for Easter weekend at the Diefenbunker, the Easter Bunny (AKA Peter Cottontail) came for a visit underground. After taking a tour through 100,000 square foot Bunker turned museum, Mr. Cottontail decided to create a clever family-friendly scavenger hunt using camouflaged eggs. There will be three levels of difficultly to accommodate a variety of ages and abilities to guarantee that everyone in the family will have a blast!
Can you figure out where the Easter Bunny has hidden all of the eggs inside the bunker?

Upon arrival, you’ll be given a scavenger hunt checklist and pencil to tally up where all the eggs are hidden.
At the end of your scavenger hunt, you will receive a treat bag that is nut-free.
Eggs are affixed to walls and other hiding spots and not removable, so there is no need to bring an Easter basket.
No chocolate eggs will be hidden throughout the museum.
Parking is free.
No Public Tours will be offered this weekend.
Consider bringing a baby carrier, instead of a stroller. The Museum is tough to navigate between floors (you’d have to carry the stroller up and down stairs).
