  • The Titan Missile Museum is one of the most awesome places to visit in Tucson. They have several different types of tours including a one hour tour of the missile silo and command center. They also offer a six hour "top to bottom" tour that has to be arranged ahead of time. You get to see every inch of the facility. It's like stepping into the past as nothing has changed since it was decommissioned. This is the last Titan missile silo left!
  • Interested in military history? The cold war? Rockets, missiles, the U.S. nuclear program? This is the place for you! The Titan Missile Museum is a treat. It is the only facility where you can get an in depth look of the only decommissioned and still intact nuclear missile. They offer a range of tours and each is well worth the fair price they charge for it. All the guides either have hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of experience. If you're truly lucky, there are retired military personnel who actually helped run the facility when it was operational during the cold war who also lead tours. It was informative, fun and would definitely do it again!
  • I previously served in the Air Force, Strategic Air Command, 321 Strategic Missile Wing, 321 Field Missile Maintenance Squadron, Grand Forks AFB. I always wanted to see how "the other guys" did things. Nice, informative tour. The curator of the museum was actually in the AF, and was a Launch Control officer of a Titan II site. Actually, I think it was THAT site!
  • So cool! The history in this place is amazing. Very real cold war relic that is well preserved and offers great family education on how it works. Take the detailed tours they are worth it over the standard tour. Really cool gift shop too with real relics for sale.
  • I started getting interested in the Titan II missile sites when I discovered the book "Command and Control" and realized I lived near the missile sites in Arkansas. Unfortunately all the AR sites were disabled and covered with dirt, leaving very little evidence of their existence. I was excited to see this museum available when we were visiting Tucson. As far as I know, it's the only Titan II site that wasn't destroyed. The normal tour shows a video about the site and then takes visitors down to the command center. An elevator is available for those who can't take the steps. We found the tour very informative, and if we lived closer we'd find a way to come without the kids and do the long (5-hour) walk-through tour. It's an interesting piece of history; I'd highly recommend visiting if you're in the area.
