will open a special exhibition commemorating the Swiss response to the Cold War starting on June 16th.
Lectures will be given during the exhibition.

- On Wednesday, November 13th, Sybille Marti will talk about the threat of nuclear war.
- On January 14th, Silvia Berger Ziaudin will talk about the cultural history of the bunkers.

As a key element of this special exhibition, the museum would like to display a "Bloodhound" anti-aircraft battery in front of the museum, However, the museum needs financial support from the public to finance the transport and installation. If you would like to help, please join the crowdfunding effort at www.wemakeit.com. If you don't want to wait to see the Bloodhound, you can see it at its original emplacement on the Gubel near Menzingen. Please contact the Military History Foundation of Zug for tours.
