Want to visit Area 51? Too bad: The mecca for conspiracy theorists isn't open to visitors. Listverse runs down the 10 most significant places around the world that are nearly impossible for the general public to visit:
- Mezhgorye: This Russian town is believed to house people working on Mount Yamantaw—which is believed to be a secret nuclear facility or bunker.
- Vatican Secret Archives: Though you can view any document more than 75 years old, you can’t enter the archives.
- Club 33: Yes, Disneyland sells booze, but only at Club 33. At the private club next to the Blue Bayou restaurant in New Orleans Square, membership costs $10,000 to $30,000—after you get to the top of the 14-year waiting list.
- Metro-2: Moscow supposedly has a secret subway system paralleling the public metro, but no one will confirm its existence.
- White’s: The most exclusive gentlemen’s club in England will likely not invite you to join—unless you’re royalty or in another powerful position.
- Room 39: Little is known about this secretive North Korean organization, but speculation says it counterfeits and launders money.
- The Ise Grand Shrine: Japan’s most sacred shrine dates to 4 BC and admits only priests and priestesses of the imperial family.
- Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center: This is the real-life version of the secret bunker where top government officials always go to escape the apocalypse—in the movies.
- RAF Menwith Hill: A British military base with connections to a global spy network, the site is believed to filter telephone and radio communications in the nations that host it.
