  • This atypical museum (and sobering monument) shows and tells Cold War history in a most memorable way! The facility appears complete, as if a crew just stepped out. The gift store educational and fun stuff alike. The restrooms, next to the store, are comfortable. The staff is upbeat and knowledgeable. We are very happy we detoured to visit.
  • If you do nothing else in Tucson go to this museum! This was one of the neatest tours I have ever taken. Informative and fascinating, this museum gives real insight into the cold war and some of the technology and effort‘s America implemented to protect the citizens against enemies. It will require a fair amount of walking and The elevator is currently not working, so you better be prepared to walk up and down at least 50 or 60 steps. The tour guides are informative and fascinating to listen to - the tour takes approximately one hour and it doesn’t seem like enough time! I highly recommend going. Five stars!
  • A young teenage girl was asked to set in the control seat as the host walked through launch procedures. On launch she said now what. The host said we wait for the explosion if they try to take out any remaining missles, but by that time your launch will probably have killed several million people . It got very quiet and you could tears in her eyes. The host said yes we were that stupid. POWERFUL STUFF.
  • Amazing museum of the Titan II missile. The tour guide was super informative. I highly recommend touring this important nuclear war defense silo.
  • Fascinating! This museum is a great way to spend an afternoon in the Tucson area. The underground bunker that housed the command center and missile are amazing to see. To think that a crew was stationed here from the early 60s through 1982 - waiting for the call to launch- it’s just wild!
