At first I was a little apprehensive to take a tour of this facility because I didn't think there was that much to see. Boy, was I wrong. This is an excellent tour put on by the men and women who actually served in this facility. It definitely gives you a feeling of how important these were during the Cold... More

I grew up in the 50-60's and this was a part of our life. This missile is the only one in existence. Volunteers were very knowledgeable, they were very nice, everyone should see this.

This was a wonderful underground tour. When we drove in was a building. So what is the big deal? The tour is underground to a past world where defensive is better than offensive. The computers are the size of a room not a iPhone. Telephones to dial and no siri. It has been left as it was since closed many... More

We would highly recommend a visit to this site. Our guide, Clif, did a great job on the tour and was very knowledgeable. We took the 1 hour tour and found it to be well organized and the perfect amount of time for the tour. We would have considered other tours but our schedule did not permit the time. The... More

I lived through the cold war and thought I knew what was going on. This was an amazing reality check. I do not think there is another such silo that has been preserved as an accurate display, so much so that the Russians had to inspect and sign off that it would not count towards our quota for START. This... More

This place should be on every ones list of places to see.. No matter your age you will be fascinated by this attraction.. About a 1 hour tour that describes the Cold War defense system that was spread across the US.. This is the only Titan missile that is still in it's silo.. Our guide was a retired military man...

One of the volunteers in our group was actually chosen to turn the key that would launch the largest missile ever built in the world. Of course it was a simulation, but the sirens and alarms that followed were real. Very good attraction for all ages. Accessible via Cold-War era cage elevator for those with mobility issues, 55 stairs down... More

My husband and I drove to the Titan Missle Museum not knowing what to be expect. We were shown a short film and then lead underground. This is one of the most interesting tours I have ever taken. The tour guides are so informative and happy to answer any and all questions. I grew up in Tucson and didn't know... More

Titan Missile Museum is literally a one of a kind attraction. It is about 30 minutes out of Tucson with easy access off the highway. The tour is about an hour and our guide was certainly well informed and engaging. The silo is the only remaining titan site of the 54 that existed during the Cold War and is really... More
