For the money it was an okay museum. It does serve as a reminder how tense the times were between us and the Soviet Union. There are 55 stairs that go down to the command site but for those who aren't able to handle them there is a elevator that will take you down. Still after it was over I... More

A few of the tour guides were actually based here as silo missile crew, I actually got to turn the launch key on my tour and received a commemorative launch crew keepsake!

Especially for youth education. A shocking reminder of of how close we were to WW3 May be your only chance to enter a missile silo. Very very economical.

This is without a doubt one of the very best on-location museums that I have ever been to. Visiting an "artefact" from the cold war like this, especially with knowledgeable and genuinely interested guides like Tony, gives an insight into the cold war that is rare to say the least. My girlfriend was just as awestruck as I. I hope... More

Visited my sister who lives in Tucson and she took us to this gem of a museum. If you are in the Tucson area, this museum needs to be on your to see list. This museum is an actual Titan II Missile silo and command center and is the only remaining one open to the public. The command center is... More

we visited this one after we were finished with the air & space. it is very interesting to see how a missile would be launched. you need to get a tour for 1h. The fee is 9.50$ per adult.

Can't understand why this place doesn't have a permanent queue outside. Really interesting and atmospheric tour by people who used to work here. The engineering and technology alone make it worth the visit - so many things to learn about how to get a missile out of a hole in the ground while preserving the safety of the people working...

This was an outstanding tour. I can't say enough good things about it...from professional, well informed docents to the well displayed equipment, everything was very well done. There is a very informative display in the visitors center to explain the missile system and program as you wait for the tour to begin. Then you go outside to the silo where... More
