Today’s the day! We are so proud to announce that as of today, our new Museum Shop is officially open! We have spent the last 4 months designing and creating a specially curated collection of Cold War and 60’s memorabilia for you to enjoy so that your Bunker experience doesn’t have to end at our blast doors!
But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!

Hot Sauce anyone?

 

That’s right, with 5 megatons of heat our Nuclear Blast hot sauce is the perfect addition to any meal or survival kit! We served this at the Preview Party with a basket of pretzels and the bottle was empty by the end of the night! This hot sauce packs a punch while still having an incredible flavour!
Ingredients: Habanero peppers, cauliflower, carrots, onions, garlic, apple cider vinegar, water, cloves, oregano, bay leaves.

Coming to your Live from the Bunker!

 

We now have a whole new line of apparel from the CBC and RCAF collections! Did you know that the Bunker has a CBC studio in it? It was meant to send an emergency broadcast all across Canada in case of attack. Everyone in Canada would have tuned to the same channel and listened to the Prime Minister’s message. Only seems fitting that we include this piece of history into our shop! These collections include:
CBC: Women’s, men’s, and children’s t-shirts and long sleeves, baseball caps, bags, patches, socks, and mugs!
RCAF: Women’s, men’s, and children’s t-shirts, baseball caps, bags and patches!

It’s so Retro!

 

Hello, the 1960’s are calling the want their gift shop back!! Check out these incredible retro additions to your home! Aside from the must-needed mint-green telephone (that actually plugs into the wall and calls!!!) and classic alarm clock, we also offer vintage games, kitchen timers, gold bar piggy banks, and puzzles!

Calling all Spies

 

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the kids! Test your spy skills with one of our decoder games or grab your spy disguise and slink through the Bunker undercover. Let their imaginations run wild with the possibilities. Don’t forget about the candy shop where kids can try all the amazing sweets you had as kids!

Basic Bunker Buys

 

With all this new stuff, it’s important to stay true to our roots and keep some amazing classics. We still offer our Bunker originals such as hats, water bottles, lanyards, mugs, MREs, and books! We’ve also added some new Bunker specific items! We’ve got Rebar mugs, Bunker postcards, “Bombs Away” shot glasses, and survival kits!

We’re so excited to share our new shop with all of you. This is only the “tip of the iceberg”, there’s still so much more to see! The Museum shop will be open during Museum hours, Monday – Friday 10:30am – 4pm, and Saturday & Sunday 10am – 4:30pm.
Don’t let your Bunker experience end at our blast doors, bring a piece of the Bunker home!
