  • If you are fortunate to time your visit with the 1st Saturday of the month when veterans provide a detailed tour to include functioning one of the Nike missiles to the launch position...awesome!
  • A must see. Try and go the one day a month it is manned by the missile base veterans. They make it one of the top tours in the national park system.
  • On the 1st Saturday of each month, the raise the missile above ground for show. You can also go down to the bunker that houses the missiles to see them up close. Quite fascinating seeing all the old technology that fortunately, was never used.
  • We made a day out of walking the Golden Gate Bridge and heading to the Nike Missile site. The site is just minutes from the bridge in the Marin Headlands. My two sons (13, 16) and I found the tour fascinating. Who knew we had nukes scattered up and down the coast from the mid-40's to 1974? Ranger Al Blank and the volunteer docents, most who served at this site or another were excellent. A great mix of history, personal experiences, and wisdom. Tour is an easy walk with a few steep stairs. Pictures are allowed. We took video as they demonstrated raising the missile from the "pit" and moved it into launch position. Great opportunity to interact with history and engage your children in meaningful conversation. Highly recommend the visit.
  • This place was very cool. The Park Ranger took us on an amazing tour and even set up a missile in launching position. It felt very authentic and was good experience over all but from what I heard from the Park Ranger it does get pretty crowded so I would try to go on a Thursday or days where the weather is a bit colder so there are less people and you get a more personal experience.
