the access is easy, there is a internal guided tour led by a volunteer docent. We were really favorably impressed with their knowledge. This was a very tenuous time in history and seeing some of the real back ground was great. There is a fee, i felt that it was fair.

My husband is a big airplane/war buff. I tagged along and it was actually very interesting. We went into the missile silo and were about 120 feet down. You get to tour the entire silo from top to bottom. If you are into the cold war, this is the museum for you. One of the most interesting museums I've been... More

This is a one of a kind place; you can only see it on a guided tour. The guides are very knowledgeable and will explain why the silo was constructed, some of its safety features, and the working conditions of those who staffed it. Photos are permitted throughout. If you lived through the Cold War, you should see it.

Very interesting and informative place to visit with excellent staff to guide you around and educate you on the silo. A real must see if in the Tucson area.

Good place to bring teenagers and visitors. The size of the missile and silo and procedures they had in place are impressive. I'm not a war buff but I enjoyed the tour.

Although its probably unfair for me to even rate this attraction fairly - I am doing it based on my own experience. There were four of us who went - the other three seemed to enjoy all the technical jargin that was being spouted out - but for me - it was a waste of money - and it was... More

Well-preserved historical monument to the MADness that was the Cold War. The guides are volunteers - many of whom actually worked at the silo when it was operational 1960s-1980s. HIGHLY recommend this for visitors to the Tucson area.

I found the whole experience to be fascinating perhaps because I grew up in the 60's and 70's during the height of the cold war. My young kids also enjoyed the video presentation and the entire tour. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and provide a lot of colorful stories. This is an important part of American history perfectly preserved.
