Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin set the stage for the Cold War by failing to agree.
OtakuSempai Button's Cold War Museum now joins the ranks of one of the best in its genre. The Cold War is the period of time, from 1947 - 1991 when the world, after the horrors of the Second World War, divided into two main military and economic blocks- NATO and the West led by the U.S.A., and The Warsaw Pact led by the U.S.S.R. competed for world domination. The Cold War almost turned hot in 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis but didn't. The ability to destroy the world many times over with over 25,000 nuclear warheads served as a good damper on warlike actions for both sides.

Many feel the Cold War is now returning, with China taking the place of the old USSR in competition with the U.S.A, and Russia reviving nationalism in the invasion of Crimea in the Ukraine. The Cold War Museum addresses this in a separate display.

A tour would be great for any high school or college who needs to get an idea for a term paper an aspect of this period in history. I highly recommend it for any history or military buff, and anyone who wants to see how to construct a great museum using a minimal amount of prims and space.
