  • I would have loved to visit the Nike missile site but the hours are not convenient for a tourist. We wanted to do the Point Bonita lighthouse and the missile site on the same day because it is next to each other but I believe the hours only overlap on Sat. On other days you can only visit one or the other. We walked over to the site from the lighthouse. Even if you can't visit the site, you can walk around the place and watch it from top. You can read about the history of the site and how the site played a role in the 50s & 60s.
  • A one of a kind tour as its the only one open to the public and restored, the tour is great and the benefits of having veterans tell their stories makes it even better. The site would benefit greatly from increase funding, to make it more operational, however, we did get a minor run through with the doors opening. The only major downside is the limited time its opened for.
  • Great place to learn about History! If you are a science major and love Aerospace - This place is for you, don't miss its guided tour, you have no idea what you would have missed until you visit former site critical to US defense.
  • Very cool military history in the Bay Area. The Park Rangers were professional and excellent. Tour is mandatory and they will escort you throughout the site. You get to see the underground bunker and more.
  • The only restored Nike Missle sight in the country. Part of our Cold War defense system. They can actually bring a (decommissioned) missle out of the bunker and raise it to launch position in mere minutes.
