Cold War

The events of the Cold War brought about the nuclear arms race between the USSR and the United States.  Emotions, fears and apprehensions ran at a dangerous level, but peace prevailed. Visitors will learn how close we came to another war before the end of the Cold War. This exhibit explores the eras of the 1950’s to the 1990’s and tracks the expansion of the nuclear weapon complex, the arms control measures used, and world events that lead to the collapse of the Soviet Union and ending of the Cold War era.  Artifacts include bombs, broken arrows and missiles that were contained in stockpiles of the United States, England and USSR.
