Titan Missile Museum

What to Expect

Welcome

The Titan Missile Museum is a private non-profit museum that preserves a formerly-operational Titan II missile site for the benefit of the public. The museum does not receive funding from any governmental entity and relies on admission fees and museum store sales to support its preservation efforts.

The museum preserves the missile site as it was in 1982 when it was decommissioned. The only way to see the missile site is to take a guided tour. Everything you'll see here is real, including the missile (without the bomb of course)! We sell snacks and bottled water in the museum store but there is no other food service at the museum.  We have a couple of picnic tables in front of the museum if you bring your lunch or a snack and there are a number of local restaurants close by. Parking is free, including room for your RV.  No admission fee is required to shop in the museum store or to visit the exhibit gallery.

I LOVE the Titan Missile Museum. It is a wealth of information and a part of living history. This place is great for anyone who loves aviation, computer programming, Cold War history, or just wants to hear a great story told by someone who actually ran and operated a working missile silo in the 1960's." — Veneranda A., Tucson, AZ
