“AWSOME MUST SEE”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

A very eye opening experience. The amazing technology of the 50s and 60s. The history in this place is a must see for everyone. Schedule the all access tour. I took the general level 2 tour and was amazed. I will defiantly go back and take the more encompassing tour.

“A Top Notch Attraction: Not to be Missed!!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Dragging my wife to the Titan Missile Museum, even She was not disappointed and found it to be both a pleasant surprise and a highlight of our recent trip.

The exhibit was simply fascinating with enthusiastic and mesmerizing guides who took visitors through the history and explanation of this underground "cold-war" (silo) facility via a walking tour concluding with a synthetic launch as would have transpired and been experienced by the stationed personnel of the day. The underground buildings house launch control, quarters, a (naturally deactivated) Titan Nuclear Missile and all of the amenities to survive and strike in the event of a nuclear attack on American soil.

A truly informative, enlightening and entertaining outing not to be missed and definitely suitable for all ages!!!

“Last of the cold war”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is the last missile silo facility of the cold war. They do a great job of encapsulating what the experience of being on duty during the alert an airmen would have to face in the average day.

It does get a bit hot as the facilities were built for 2-4 people and they cram about 20 people in, but it's still quite an experience.

“The past brought to life”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Just off of I-19, south of Tucson, is the Titan Missile Museum. There is a nice museum and gift shop. The tour is very interesting and informative. Since most of the silo is below ground, there are steps to descend to the control room. Those who cannot make the steps, travel to the control room via an elevator. The tour guide takes you through the steps required to launch a missile. After the control room tour you can wander the above-ground sites. This is well worth your time.
