The Cold War Museum


The Cold War Museum® is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to education, preservation, and research on the global, ideological, and political confrontations between East and West from the end of World War II to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
The Museum is located at Vint Hill, in one of the former Vint Hill Farm Station buildings used during the Cold War by the US Army, the National Security Agency, and the Central Intelligence Agency to intercept and interpret coded messages. Our collections are particularly strong on signals intelligence, image intelligence, aerial surveillance, civil defense, Berlin, the East German secret police (STASI), the Cuban Missile Crisis, and events such as the Pueblo and Liberty incidents. The Museum shares a campus with The Inn at Vint Hill, the Vint Hill Craft Winery, the Covert CafĂ©, and Old Bust Head Brewing Company. Our website (www.coldwar.org) provides extensive information about aspects of the Cold War.  The street address is 7172 Lineweaver Road, Vint Hill, VA 20187.  Hours: Saturdays 11-4, Sundays 1-4, and by appointment. Admission and the tour are free but we welcome donations.
