The daily tour is knowledgeable, but definitely a bit brisk to compress everything into an hour. The first 10 minutes are spent watching a DVD, so the actual walking tour is even shorter. They do warn you about the stairs, but there is a lift to go up and down if your knees can't manage. The regular tour really stops... More

My boyfriend was really eager to see the Titan 2 museum on our 3 day visit to Tucson. I was reluctant At first since we had such limited time and so many other tourist sites to squeeze in. I'm so glad we didn't miss this as it ended up being one of our most memorable stops! We did the 1... More

This museum is a bit out of the way (by design). During the cold war there were 18 of these sights surrounding Tuscon. This museum if a fascinating look into the cold war strategy of mutual annihilation. Everyone should go to this museum to understand how serious our government and military was at protecting its citizens and the world. Please... More

A real experience of recent history which would interest all the family. Well worth the visit. The guide, a former employee, really added to the experience.

We visited the Titan Missile Museum on our fall break. I was worried it might be "too much" for my boys ages 7 and 9 but they were captivated the entire time! My husband and I both enjoy history. We were born near the end of the Cold War, after the "duck and cover" era. I was amazed to learn... More

I was born in the waning days of World War II, so I remember well the tensest days of the Cold War and the accompanying nuclear bomb drills, "duck and cover" under desks at school, learning the route to the nearest bomb shelters. This museum brings it all to life and the chilling thought of how close we may have... More

Having grown up in the Cold War era I was always fascinated about the strategic nuclear deterrents both sides developed and stocked up on. For me, this museum was a great find. The guides we had were extremely knowledgeable and were able to convey why the need for nuclear deterrents arose and also go into details about the missile sites... More

A must for anyone interested in rocketry, missiles and technology but especially history -- that of arm race and WMD. The guides are knowledgeable and engaging -- they are the people that manned those back in the days. I recommend to extend your tour and stay for the lecture afterwards -- it is both educational and entertaining. Thanks folks --... More

The museum is only accessible via a guided/escorted/chaperoned tour, lasting a little less than one hour, during which you are shepherded as a group (of about 25 people) and shown relatively little of the silo. There are more extensive tours, for escalating larger admission prices. Most of the time inside the sole is taken by a detailed explanation of the... More

We had a real nice time at the Titan Missile Museum. The tour guide told us so much and explained it even more above ground for us foreigners. It's a real piece of technic that is shown. I'm glad I was able to go there and see for myself what kept the world in balance back in the '60-'70 and'80.... More
