  • I knew a little about ICBMs but I learned a lot more than a thought I would. The tour guide was knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. The price is very reasonable and family friendly. Since...

  • Unique military museum, one of the best we've ever visited. Where else can you turn the Launch Key for a test firing?

  • I learned so much from this piece of history. The staff was very nice and knowledgable. I will go back again with my children. I highly recommend visiting the Titan Missile Museum.

  • Fascinating facility that lends visitors a clear picture of how serious the Cold War really was. Whether or not you lived through that time period, I recommend this museum to gain a better grasp on the circumstances, and how the U.S. and U.S.S.R. were armed to the hilt to deter each other from launching an attack. The missile itself, as well as the control center, are well below ground. The grounds still feature the motion sensors that guarded the missile silo (don't worry; they're not active!). Definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere nearby or traveling through on I-19.
  • Extremely knowledgeable and passionate tour guide added so much value to this already incredible place. It was surreal to hear about what life was like living on this base, especially from someone who lived it for 4 years. I was blown away. This is definitely a must visit place for anyone in the Tucson area for sure!
  • We were vacationing in Mesa from Wisconsin and saw the Grand Canyon, aquarium, and many other tourist things in Arizona. By far, my favorite was the Titan Missile Museum. the tour guides are great, the glimpse into the past was mind blowing, and the chance to step back into the cold war and think about the fear and preparation our country had to go through was awe inspiring. I took my 11 and 13 year old sons and we all thought this was our favorite. It was great to be educated on why the missiles were built and what kind of destructive power they had.
  • If you enjoy military or aeronautical history, then you'll enjoy seeing this facility. It brings to reality what the Cold War was like in the 60's and 70's. The guides give a great tour and demo! I recommend buying tour tickets in advance. We walked up and fortunately only had to wait about 45 minutes for our tour. There is plenty to read and look at, so the 45 minutes went by fast!
  • I’d highly suggest a reservation for this! If you have a membership to the Pima air and space museum you can utilize this for the titan missile museum too! This is great place to go if you’ve never been but not worth going multiple times whereas it’s worth going to the air and space multiple times. It says it’s ages 0-100 friendly but really I would not bring anyone under 100. My child got yelled at for touching a telephone. Most of the guides are not very friendly and my friend in town visiting that works for the military said a few of the facts during the tour were inaccurate. Decent distance from the city so if you’re going to make the trip out I’d suggest also going to San Xavier since it’s on your way!
