The host was knowledgable and pleasant, providing plenty of facts, stories and answered questions very well. It is interesting to see how things could have turned out very differently for the world. The tour is well worth taking, educational and shows how we have progressed.

This museum is accessible for those who are unable to walk the 55 steps in each direction. Docents are knowledgable and make the Cold War years come alive. Some of them were actually assigned to the facility when it was operational. They can get technical about the specs if one asks a question but all equipment descriptions are in lay... More

I enjoyed the tour guided by a very knowledgeable docent. I do think that you have to be over 40 to enjoy it. I think younger people and kids would be bored and unable to relate. With today's technology this is more of a history museum and was interesting to see how the missiles were managed in the 60's. A... More

It seems inconceivable that there was a time when we felt that it was necessary to secure peace through mutually assured destruction. To see the mechanics of that policy, and to understand that the people who worked at each of these sites literally bore the responsibility of potentially carrying out that action if the order was issued, was humbling.

My wife and I stopped by the Titan Missile Museum during a recent trip to and from nearby Bisbee, Arizona. Being somewhat of a pacifist, I wasn't sure I would enjoy this stop. I was wrong. This museum has something for everyone. I came away with a greater respect for our U.S. military, and for our amazing American science and... More

Amazing museum that really brings home the Cold War realities that we may forgotten some of those details. Very well done and it helps tremendously when the docents are people who used to work at the installation. Love the ability to look around outside on our own time. Will be nice to go back sometime and take some of the... More

Whether you like history, engineering, or impressive feats of ingenuity this place is an absolute must. Take a step back to the cold war and learn all about American-Soviet history. Or, marvel in the impressive structure and forward thinking of the facility. Or know the missile design helped propel the US into outer space with Project Gemini. Do not miss... More

We stopped by here at 9:30 (opens at 9:45) and were behind a bus of Asian tourists so we would not have been able to tour before 11 am. We got tickets for the 2 pm tour and made it back after a visit to Madera Canyon for a short hike and a delicious lunch at The Olive's in Green... More

This is the site of a missile that was manned during the Cold War era. The missile is still in place in the silo! For those of us who remember the days of the super power potential missile conflicts it's amazing to see. Our guide had been stationed at the base near the site so it was very interesting to...
