It was interesting to see the missile and our guide was very good - knowledgeable and listenable. I totally get the concept of "peace by deterrance", but the whole "missile experience" was a little off-putting in the context of the arms race - the huge financial and social costs by both sides in the Cold War. Still, it was interesting... More

This was an important part of our history and everyone should at least read about the museum if a trip to the Tucson area is not in their future. There is a museum and a guided tour. It is necessary to allow time to do both. The tour tickets sell out, so it is a good idea to get there... More

Visiting here, even as a USAF vet, I learned a great deal. The museum docents are all very friendly and know a lot about this missile silo, and it's procedures. They know a lot about the cold war too. You get to actually see the count down procedure before launch. Very cool. Fun gift shop too.

This remnant of the cold war was amazing to view in its original location. You really can’t appreciate the size and scale of the missile and the infrastructure needed to support the operation without taking the tour and viewing first hand. The tour was extremely informative and our guide especially entertaining, particularly when we paused in the control room underground... More

Chilling touring the site. To think staff had to work under the thought that they might be blowing up part of humanity must have been a horrible burden. The docent was poor. Spoke non stop. Did not encourage questions. Listed off technical stats. Would have been more interesting if the human element was the focus. A former teacher would be... More

Went with children and grandchildren (16 yrs) they all were very interested in the mission and what the difficult times were. I grew up in that era and I did not know it may have been devastating for the nation. Great educational experience. Guides were very good.

A must for anyone who remembers the Duck and Cover drills of the 1950s. It was a time of mutual terror.

This site is an exciting piece of American history. Could have included the crew quarters on the tour?

My only regret is we didn't have more time to see everything but the time we did have was certainly worth it. We did the one hour tour but missed the opening video. I would think if you did the hour long tour that two hours would be about right time wise. The visit got me to thinking about everything... More
