Unlike anything I have seen before. The guide gave a lot of good information and I learned a lot of things. The informational plaques around the grounds outside were well worth the time to read.

I grew up in the 70's and 80's, during the latter half of the cold war. This visit really brought home the reality of something that seemed distant. The quality of the tour guides, who are volunteers, was absolutely top notch. They were enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. I have been to Tucson about 10 times over the last few years... More

We signed up for a crew tour and ended up with a retired commander (Marge?). Our guide was excellent! The site is really impressive and nicely preserved. Well organized; the informative panels give just the right amount of info. You get to observe a simulated launch and then walk up to the missile itself to see it from up close.... More

A fascinating step back in time to the reality of the cold war era. The guide was informative and excellent. the facility itself was fascinating even though the technology was dated those 8 foot walls were not. Plus the ability of the Titan missile to deliver a nebular war head to Moscow 30 minutes after lauch.

We really enjoyed the tour and it was well worth the trip from Tucson. We were lucky to have the historian and archivist of the site (Chuck) give us the tour and his knowledge of the site was fantastic. My son did the Junior Missileer Booklet which added to the trip. The visit gave us much food for thought and... More

Enjoyed our tour of the facility. We used the Tucson Passport which gave us a 2 for 1 admission (saved us $9.50!). Docents were very knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable. Great place to bring the kids as they got to "participate" in the tour.

We took the 1-hour guided tour. The site is well kept and impressive. Our guides really knew their history and the interesting facts of missile sites during the cold war. We found the technology, the security on the site, the redundancy of communication gear, the way the silo was built and the missile itself fascinating. What an up close and... More

This sounded interesting in advance, but it turned out to be far more so than expected. You get a very clear and compelling sense of nuclear buildups and preparations -- and the procedures that were in place to deploy a missile (which, once in the air, could not be redirected or disarmed.) It also provided some our most talked-about vacation... More
