THE MAINTAINER OF THE MUSEUM
The Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum is maintained by the “The Rock” Museum Public Benefit Foundation. The Foundation was established in 2015 and its mission is to show that it is possible to behave as a person in dictatorships and wartime, and to choose the good. The real heroes are those who heal and help, not take the lives of others. It also aims to present the true face of the war, to convey an authentic history to the general public, with an educational purpose. The Foundation operates independently of parties, ideologies and churches, and operates the museum and its other functions without state support, from its own revenues and donations.
Please support the work of our Foundation with your donation. We use your help to maintain the museum, to donate class trips for disadvantaged children, and provide our scientific, research, and educational activities.
