According to the literature: "The Titan Missile Museum showcases the dramatic vestiges of the Cold War between the U.S. and former Soviet Union and provides a vivid education about the history of nuclear conflict-a history of keeping the peace. At the Titan Missile Museum, near Tucson, Arizona, visitors journey through time to stand on the front line of the Cold... More

We didn't have too many expectations going here, but wanted to do something else than the attractions we usually go to. This place was really worth while. The guide was great, the history really interesting (even though we're not from the US) and not everyone can say that they have been to a facility like this. A lot of other... More

Relatively short tour (about an hour) with lots of details. This is a real piece of American (and world) history that you won't see elsewhere. Our son (age 9) was the only kid on the tour we went on, so he got to pull the 6,000 lb. blast door shut AND turn the key to launch the missile. He got... More

I've been trying for years to get to Tucson with enough time to get to this museum. This time I built my whole trip around getting to this museum and I am so glad I did! Firstly, a big THANK YOU to those Cold Warriors that manned these silos in the Tucson area as well as around Little Rock, AR... More

Very interesting tour of the missile site. Informative 17 minute video, plus history before you head to the silo. Tour guides were well informed, and answered all questions. A must see for history buffs.

As the last Titan II missile silo, now a museum, I am glad it was saved for us to understand more deeply what went on. The intro movie was very helpful. Then the docent took us into the facility to see the top of the silo, missile engines, then down into the control room and finally the underground missile silo.... More

Saw the site with my husband and his family in Feb. I found the site to be awe inspiring. Scary to see what could have been. Worth a side trip if you are visiting Tucson.

It may not be for everyone, but if you are or were interested in the Cold War, the Arms Race or nuclear technology, this is a must-visit attraction. You get to take a tour underground into the heart of an ICBM launch complex, complete with huge blast doors, a launch control room and a huge missile in the silo. I... More

Having served in the military and having worked around the missile sight in Montana, this facility that everyone should visit. It will give you a true perspective of how America was and is protected and ready to defend our borders against any enemy who may wish to launch a nuclear strike upon us. It is a very impressive facility and... More

My husband and I live in SE Arizona but had never toured this facility until we had house guests come visit who we thought might enjoy it. Well they did...as did we! Trish was our guide and she was great. You experience history here - it was a great tour and well worth the time and money. I will add... More
