Bunker Tours


The secret is out! The declassified Bunker at The Greenbrier is a must-see experience that takes you behind the scenes and walks you through a fascinating period in the resort's history. Carved deep into the mountainside beneath our West Virginia Wing is an emergency Cold War fallout shelter. Once a top secret U.S. government relocation facility for Congress, The Bunker is now open to anyone interested in reliving a legendary piece of The Greenbrier history. Bunker Tours provide a unique and in-depth look behind the hidden doors and let you explore an aspect of The Greenbrier that no other resort can claim.  Reserve your place in our history today!


Bunker Tours are generally offered daily to registered hotel guests as well as the general public. Tours are approximately 90 minutes in length and are available for guests 10 years of age and older.

At the conclusion of the Bunker Tour, participants receive vouchers good for $5 off The History of The Greenbrier (book) or The Greenbrier, America’s Resort, The Brief History (DVD) available in The Greenbrier Shoppe & Newsstand.
