This tour was terrific. I lived through the 50's and 60's so the threat of nuclear war was part of my childhood. This museum takes you through the soils of the last remaining Titan missile site and recreates the history of our nuclear deterrent. Not sure if children would enjoy this as much but all the adults in my party... More

Family and I were in Tucson and didn't find on this site because it is just outside of Tucson. A local told us about it, so we gave it a try. As far as I understood it is the only Titan 2 missile site museum. Price was cheap and the volunteers were knowledgeable and fun. Tour had my kids saying... More

There is nothing but praise that I can say about the Docents and this Titan Missile Museum. We took our 15 year old son for the evening tour and we were all left in Awe. Seeing the lights on around the Missile and the lightening far off in the Catalina Mountains was memorable. I highly recommend visiting for any one,... More

This is a truly unique experience. The guided tour was highly informative and the experience of standing beside a missile of this size unforgettable, I'm glad that a museum of this kind exists to remind us of what might have been and would strongly recommend a visit,

Located about a half hour south of Tucson, AZ, off I-19 in Sahuarita, the Titan Missile Museum (aka Titan II ICBM Site 571-7) is preserved pretty much as it was during the Cold War. The Titan II missile was the "ultimate weapon" and the cornerstone of the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) defense system designed to keep the world safe from... More

No where else in the world can you find a Titan missile in its silo and get to wander round it, no where else... The tour is great and everyone should go here!

The sole surviving one of the 54 launch complexes for the Titan-II ICMBs - what's not to like? It's all there - a (training) missile in the silo; the missile launch control centre 35 feet underground; the monster cover for the silo; secret codes; launch keys. We've seen all this stuff in movies - which undoubtedly involved a lot of... More

It's an historic, one-of-a-kind example of America's nuclear capability during the Cold War. The missile sitting in its silo was amazing! The tour was fascinating & so informative. It was great that we were able to go down into the control room and hear about all the safeguards that existed to ensure that the security of the site was not... More

Enjoyable and educational as well. The narrator was really informative and my sister, who was visiting, enjoyed the demonstration and quality of the program. she was sorry her husband was not there to enjoy the presentation as well. She said he really would have "loved" the site.

We've gone here 4 or 5 times with visitors from 10 to 80. Every one enjoyed the tour and learned what the cold war really was.They are continually adding more information to the tour.
