Museum is small and intimate. No frills, just facts. What makes this place cool is the tour guides (docents) worked at the silo during the cold war, and not only give facts and figures, but tell you what it was like first-hand. Enjoy this unique benefit while they're still around!

Fascinating tour! I was amazed at the thought that went in to every aspect of the design and how rapidly the sites were built. Our guide, Herb, was very knowledgable, as if he had been there and done that. So glad that I was not selected to "Turn the Key." Even knowing that the missile has no fuel and no... More

Even if you are not into history or war, this is a must see if you are any where near Tucson. This amazing site has been preserved for us to view and learn, so don't miss out on the opportunity. I was amazed at the absolute size and scale of the facility and the missile. Once you go underground, you... More

We have visited the Titan Missile Museum and Pima Air and Space Museum many times over the years. We always bring our out of town guests and they are amazed. I grew up during the cold war and didn't fully understand what was actually going on. This tour puts it all in perspective so well. We are very appreciative some... More

The site is easily accessed, and close to the I-19. The staff were very friendly and seemed genuinely happy we were there. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. Mt wife was selected to 'sit in the chair' and 'turn the key'. The site is meticulously maintained. The one think I wish is that the living... More

My family and I have spent the last few days reading about the Titan Missile Museum and were really excited to go visit it today. We have 3 kids that I homeschool 5,4 and 2 so this was supposed to be a educational experience and memories made for my family. I should start off by saying that my kids were... More

Looks like a fun place but not if you have kids, they don’t like kids so forget about it if you want to take the family. When I got there with my three kids all the staff was telling me was what a disruption my kids would be to everyone and how we would probably be asked to leave. My... More

We wanted to see something different this trip to Tucson. My husband found this museum. It was cool to tour an actual missile site. My daughter was chosen to 'turn the key' to launch the missile. It was the actual key and that was a weird but neat experience. If you are looking for something different and educational in an... More

This is truly a unique educational experience. I really enjoyed the basic tour, including the pre-order film. Being inside the silo was so cool- seeing all the inner workings of the installation was fascinating. If a member of your party is claustrophobic, I'd think twice about taking them down into the silo, but even my mom, who usually has trouble... More

Standing next to the giant beast of a Titan II missile is a sobering experience. (Even if it is inert.) To think how we could have easily destroyed civilization and the planet, with the push of a button and the turn of a few keys. I took the extended "Beyond the blast doors," tour. I highly recommend it. The simulated... More
