Take a tour to see an intercontinental ballistic missile in its Cold War environment and view the technology used by the United States to deter nuclear war.

Brilliant little find 30 mins from Tucson. A real life nuclear missile silo complete with Titan 2 missile. Nice little exhibit and presentation before entering the silo. Tour of about 1 hr under groun... more »

I would say this is pretty much a must-see! It is a very unique, important, and interesting part of fairly recent history! The teenage girls enjoyed it as did us adults. more »
Wow! Great place for anyone who remembers air raid duck-and-cover drills in school. Actually fantastic for adults and kids of any age. Went when it was over 110 out - fully air-conditioned except walking out to the entry stairway. Great guides. Nice shop with interesting stuff.
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!
I took a "Beyond the blast doors" tour and it was AMAZING!!! You get to see a lot of stuff underground and hear a lot of amazing stories too. One thing that was unique for us was someone on the tour used to be stationed at one of these silos - he said that the noise underground was DEAFENING always - due to the pumps/etc. You get to stand under the missile, it was awesome.
Went during memorial day weekend, and the tour was great! The staff did a great job covering the history as well as the details of the missile and silo. Some of the staff actually served at the facility, which added even more meaning to the experience. Definitely was the highlight of the weekend for the entire family!
Incredible, one-of-a-kind relic from the not-too-distant past. The tour guides are very informative; my dad wrongly assumed the tour guide worked here when the base was operational because he knew so much about the place. The 1 hr tour fills up fast on weekends, so be sure to call ahead of time to see if there are available slots.
