The former command post at Grou is now part of a museum that conserves the heritage of the organisation set up to protect the population during the Cold War. Experience the feeling of the Cold War and visit the underground bunkers. 

In Grou, there is an unusual command post that dates back to the Cold War. The four command posts stationed at the bunker were: Kringcommandopost Bescherming Bevolking (KCBB-Friesland-c), a local command post for the protection of the population, Provinciale Commandopost Bescherming Bevolking (PCBB-Friesland), a provincial command post for the protection of the population, Gemeentelijk Centrum Civiele Verdediging (GCCV-Leeuwarden) a municipal centre for civil defence, and Provinciaal Centrum Civiele Verdediging (PCCV-Friesland), a provincial centre for civil defence. When the construction plans were drawn up in around 1965, it was decided that a combined command post should be built here. After a long period of preparation, this unique command post in Grou was officially opened for operations in 1967.
