Lets start this review with a quick comment on the people - all the docents, gift shop staff and everyone we met were extremely pleasant. That has been my experience across Arizona, but I did want to call this out - as it is important to note. OK - onto the facility. If you grew up during the cold war... More

You got to go thru this place, they even have a rocket, less the fuel and warhead. You see where they lived and worked and how the would have launched a missle the melodrama was quite interesting.

This was an AWESOME site to visit. I paid for a private guide and the "top to bottom" tour in order to see every nook and cranny of the facility. The guide was great and we spent SIX HOURS going into rooms, floors, spaces that most people rarely see. The engineering was amazing. To get to walk through history and... More

The docents were kind, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. My boyfriend and I visited recently and had our own 'private tour' of the subterranean treasure. If you happen to be passing through Tucson this place is a MUST! The fact that this place is the last 1 out of a total of 54 buildings like it is reason enough to appreciate this... More

Popped in here straight from visiting the Pima air and space museum. Belonging to the same organisation, the Titan museum has volunteers working for them, who have been previous missilemen, or have been based in silos in the past. I think this is really important as it gives a real true account as to what went on down there way... More

So thankful that we were able to visit - What was once one of America's most top secret places - Titan Missile Museum. This preserved Titan II missile site, officially known as complex 571-7, is all that remains of the 54 Titan II missile sites that were on alert across the United States from 1963 to 1987. We took a... More

I had stumbled upon the existence of this museum by chance, included it in my vacation list and went along not sure what to expect. The site feels intimate, in the sense that small groups go round at a time, with an individual guide, you feel like you are seeing something not everyone does. Very little is altered giving you...

If you are able to I highly recommend the crew tour. They require a reservation and are only on Tuesdays at 9am. The crew were actual military personal working in the silo. So you get a first hand account of how it was to live and work in the silo.

I'm over 50. All these years, we lived with the Americans and the Russians pointing scores of big doomsday-rockets at eachother. Times have changed (somewhat) for the better since those years. I was not aware of the existance of this museum, and it was a wonderful experience. The missile and the installation can no longer be used, but it all... More

The Titan tour ( initial level) and the museum were an outstanding morning visit. The videos inside were informative and entertaining. The museum is a reminder of how long and how close the world was too atomic destruction. ROY did our 1 hour; he was so well spoke, knowledgeable and enjoyable to listen to during out walk on the upper... More
