We remember the Cold War and that made our experience of the Titan Missile Museum riveting. The decommissioned missile was in the silo, viewable from different depths. Our tour of the control room was given by an officer who had served in one. The complete process from activating message to launch (58 seconds!) was enacted for us. It was a... More

Brought my young (11-14) kids along to this and they were really blown away by the high tech 1960s computer gear I thought this was a really great place to visit Given my age I obviously lived through all the Cold War and slightly doubted the appeal to the kids - but they were all fascinated by it We had...

We did the top to bottom tour and it was super interesting. Time was running so fast, it did not feel like 5hrs. And even then, after the official part was over, they still took their time to answer so many more questions. And a big thank you to the maintenance crew! Unbelievable, how spotless the whole place was.. Really... More

Fascinating sight and tour of our former Nuclear Deterrent System called the Titian Missile system. The facility is a fantastic step back into the height of the Cold War days with the USSR. The complex is very neat, clean, and cold looking like it did in the 60's to launch a Titan Missile towards unknown targets. The tour guides are... More

Visited here while visiting Phoenix. The tour, musuem and history provided during the visit was truly amazing. The tour guide did an excellent job explaining the various functions as you travel through the silo. Would definitely recommend this not only for history buffs, but anyone interested in military or other similar facts.

The Titan Missile Museum is an excellent place to go for the history of the Cold War. The tour was explained the in and outs for crew life in the silo, walking into the bunker, seeing the control room and the actual missile. The tours start on the hour.

My wife and I did the 4-5 hour Top to Bottom tour on 9-6-16 with tour guides Tom and Craig. We enjoyed the history of the Titan Missile, the concept of MAD, and the Top to Bottom tour. Yes.. Peace through Strength. A concept that the U.S. still adheres to today. Go USA! Many opportunities to take pictures and ask... More

This museum is a National Historic site and is operated by a non-profit. Prior to this visit, our last one was more than 15 year ago. They have made a lot of improvements since then. We arrived on Saturday in time for the first tour of the day (9:00) and we were the only ones on the tour which was... More

If you find cold-war history interesting you should check definitely this place out. There's nothing else like it. Don't be afraid to borrow a hard hat if you're on the tall side.

I have for many years wanted to visit the Titan Missile Museum and finally got the opportunity. It is a fascinating place, with docents that are knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge. The exhibits, include maps, specifications, a missile used for training in the silo and a tour of the control center. Most of the tour is inside so... More
