Project Cold War museum
Bodø was a hotspot during the Cold War and held a crucial NATO base due to the closeness to the Sovjet Union. Due to the amount of history the city holds, The Norwegian Aviation Museum is working towards creating a new museum.
Due to this initiative and the museums expertise on the area, the task of creating a national hub for cold war dissemination, has befallen to The Norwegian Aviation Museum by the ministry of culture.
In 2017, the funds were granted to create a preliminary project, showing the possibility of a new Cold War museum in the historic nuclear-proof facility, Hangar 96. The project is nearly coming to an end, and will culminate in an application to the Department of Culture in early March.
