This is a relic of the Cold War, and we are so thankful that it was made into a museum. The docents are very knowledgable and funny, and taught us a lot about the missile silo and the people who worked there. It is scary to think about what could have happened if it ever launched, but thankfully their motto... More

Of the 54 Titan II Missile sites in the US from 1963 - 1987, this is the last one still remaining. What an opportunity to go down into the silo and pass through security doors and into the actual control room. Nowhere else can one go into this kind of an environment. It was once one of America's most Top... More

10 and 13 year old boys loved it. Lots of real historical info and context, and there's a GIANT MISSILE in the ground. Takes and hour or so, and gets you out of the Arizona sun.

For anyone who lived through the dark days of the "Cold War", this is an experience not to be missed. The rocket sits in the silo exactly as it did when it was active. The visit allows you to see all the functions of the operation, including the process for launching the rocket, with missile attached. The docents are very... More

A must-see for anyone even vaguely interested in modern history, the Cold War, military issues, man's capacity to seek its own destruction etc! Going into a nuclear missile silo, with its infrastructure almost identical to when it was in operation, and with a real and huge (safe) Titan missile in place, is quite something. Brings some of the realities of... More

What apiece of history. I thoroughly enjoyed this attraction and like all museums with volunteers, the staff and guides were fantastic. I was surprised about the level of access, you can sit right in the chair and turn the key. They have the simulator software hooked up to the control console and play a missile launch, it is chilling when... More

This was a fascinating museum; well worth the trip. And if you are a Star Trek fan, ask the director of the museum, Yvonne Morris, about the filming of the Star Trek Movie First Contact with Patrick Stewart as Picard, at this location. Then she will allow you special access to the missile that is not part of the regular... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Titan Silo Museum. We did the tour done by a former commander of the Silo from President Reagan's time in office. Heard how close the US really came to a missile launch during his time. Pretty scary to find out that we came so close. Interesting to hear the procedures of the silo when... More
