Titan Missile Museum

Beyond the Blast Door Tour

On the Beyond the Blast Door Tour, you'll explore areas of the missile site normally closed to the public. See where the crews ate and slept and then descend more than 100 feet underground and enter the launch duct. Experience a view you'll never forget as you stand directly beneath an actual Titan II missile!

This tour is offered on the first and third Saturdays of every month at 9:30am. It lasts approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, and also includes a visit to the underground launch control center where you'll experience a simulated launch of the missile.

This tour is limited to 20 people and is not handicapped accessible. 
You must be able to descend and climb multiple flights of stairs during the tour, and you must also be able to climb six 15-foot ladders, one after the other, in an emergency.  We are very strict about this physical requirement. If staff has any doubt about a visitor's ability to climb six 15-foot ladders, the visitor will not be allowed to go on the tour.

You must be at least 10 years old to go on this tour.  Closed-toe shoes with rubber soles are required.  Flip flops and sandals are prohibited.  Large purses, bags, camera bags and backpacks are also prohibited on this tour.

The tour is assembled at 9:20am so that staff may provide a safety briefing to tour participants. Please arrive at the museum no later than 9:15am so that you have time to pick up your tickets and use the restroom prior to the safety briefing.

Reservations and pre-payment (non-refundable) are required.  Please call (520) 625-4598 to make your reservations and payment. 

1st & 3rd Saturday mornings of each month. (Note: There is no Beyond the Blast Door Tour on November 18, 2017.)

Time: 9:30am (Check in at Admissions no later than 9:15am or your reservation may be canceled.) 

Admission Fee:  $20/person  (No discounts apply.)


Titan Missile Museum is literally a one of a kind attraction. The silo is the only remaining Titan site of the 54 that existed during the Cold War and is really an amazing glimpse back in time. The engineering that went into this program back in the 1960s is quite incredible. I would recommend this short visit to anyone in Tucson or visiting. It will bring back memories for those who lived through the Cold War and be a valuable learning experience for those who didn't." — David G., Northbrook, IL
