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

It's almost impossible to describe what it feels like to go down into an ICBM site and think about the days when the entire world could have been destroyed by Titan missiles owned by Russia and the U.S. Volunteers (many of whom worked at this site when the missile was active) lead the tours and bring many interesting personal observations...

Museum is small and intimate. No frills, just facts. What makes this place cool is the tour guides (docents) worked at the silo during the cold war, and not only give facts and figures, but tell you what it was like first-hand. Enjoy this unique benefit while they're still around!

Fascinating tour! I was amazed at the thought that went in to every aspect of the design and how rapidly the sites were built. Our guide, Herb, was very knowledgable, as if he had been there and done that. So glad that I was not selected to "Turn the Key." Even knowing that the missile has no fuel and no... More

Even if you are not into history or war, this is a must see if you are any where near Tucson. This amazing site has been preserved for us to view and learn, so don't miss out on the opportunity. I was amazed at the absolute size and scale of the facility and the missile. Once you go underground, you... More

We have visited the Titan Missile Museum and Pima Air and Space Museum many times over the years. We always bring our out of town guests and they are amazed. I grew up during the cold war and didn't fully understand what was actually going on. This tour puts it all in perspective so well. We are very appreciative some... More

The site is easily accessed, and close to the I-19. The staff were very friendly and seemed genuinely happy we were there. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. Mt wife was selected to 'sit in the chair' and 'turn the key'. The site is meticulously maintained. The one think I wish is that the living... More

My family and I have spent the last few days reading about the Titan Missile Museum and were really excited to go visit it today. We have 3 kids that I homeschool 5,4 and 2 so this was supposed to be a educational experience and memories made for my family. I should start off by saying that my kids were... More

Looks like a fun place but not if you have kids, they don’t like kids so forget about it if you want to take the family. When I got there with my three kids all the staff was telling me was what a disruption my kids would be to everyone and how we would probably be asked to leave. My... More
