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.

  • This is well worth the short ride south of Tucson. The museum tour is very well done. The story it tells is fascinating, especially for those of us that lived through so many of those activities (e.g....  read more »
  • This is the only Titan missile silo remaining in the US. At one time there were 18 in each of three states with Arizona being one of them. It is a complete facility as was operated when started in lat...  read more »
  • What an interesting trip back in time. This site is a well preserved example of the Nuclear Titan II missile silos that used to dot the countryside in some states. One curious fact is how the missile ...  read more »
  • What a great way to learn about the Cold war. Very amazing tour. Non-profit museum. Tour guide was great. Plenty of photo opportunitys. If you're disabled they have an elevator to take you down to the bottom. Lots of things to see and read about. For only $9.00 for adults, great way to spend a weekend
  • This is a really fascinating piece of American history. A tour of the museum will take you deep into the bowels of a Titan Missile silo. I probably would not make this my destination for the day, but can be great when included with a trip to Nogales (only worth visiting if you cross the border - fun place to shop for souvenirs and Mexican art) or Tubac (or the long way round to Patagonia/Sonoita which is a marvelous drive).
  • Lots of history here... kids really ought to see just what we've been capable of. The engineering is most impressive, even though you don't get too see the best parts of it. Well worth the short trip outside town.
  • Landed here when my ufo ran out of litbhiun ion regenerative fuel 10 miles outside of the border town to yhe the south. I saw the sign for this place. Mind you this was in the mid 1990s before smart phones where popular among the masses. I shelled out the monies for the tour. A family was there for the tour. Oddly the mother in tge group clearly expressed she didnt want to be there. Why did she want to ruin the tour for the rest of the family? Why not just wait in the car, listen to radio and paint her toenails or pick her nose and eat it. Well the tour itself was fine. The engineering stupendous. Yes engineers being ripped off by politicians to create this junk in the first place. They might as well build some missile silos on the 4th planet from the Sun you earthlings call Mars. Then you can test the missiles actually. Which in turn would stir up climate changes and could make the atmosphere conducive for organisms to live there. Hey someone tell NASA or No Tell Kim Jong Un who is famous and owns his own country too. North Korea is the country owned by Kim Jong Un who is famous. Copy. Roger
  • Weird and unique part of cold war history, with an inexplicably technical tour of an old nuclear missle silo. If you can make the trip to this remote part of Arizona, make. Sure to check it out. Definitely expect gung-ho, american-flag-t-shirt-wearing hillbillies to be on the tour, but still attend to see the weird 1960s computer equipment inside the bunker. If you're younger than a baby boomer, it will doubtlessly be interesting to the see the real, material impact of the conflict between the US and the Soviet Union.
