A little off the beaten path, but if you have time and are interested in the Cold War this is a good hit. The guides take you down into a real minuteman missle silo. At the end of the tour 2 lucky peope (usually kids) get to start Armegeddon and launch the missle...simulated of course :)

I would not plan a day around this, but if you have an hour to spare, it is interesting. Just a basic tour of a couple areas of the underground part. They do have people who actually manned the station there, but our guy just had the basic tour memorized and not all that well. I did speak with other friends who had been and they seemed to know things we had not been told........

If you want a tour into what the missileers went through during the Cold War this place is it. Very knowledgable docents to guide you through the Titan II missile complex. Well worth the trip!

You don't have to have had service time to appreciate the work done related to missle silos.

This is definitely worth the trip, especially for those of us who lived during the cold war. It was also a great opportunity to educate our kids on what it was like during that time. One of our guides actually worked at this site when it was operational, and the other guide worked at a Missileman site. Needless to say, they were very knowledgeable.
