    Testimonials & Reviews

    I can't recommend a visit to this museum enough. If you have any interest in military, cold war or even star trek for that matter you should really visit this place. Very nice and knowledgeable staff, the complex is preserved beautifully and the construction is impressive to say the least. The launch simulation in the launch command room was very eye opening and I left the place with a great respect for all who served in these missile silos. I would visit again.

    The museum has an unassuming presence and is therefore easy to overlook. I've lived in the area for about 12 years and had never been until this weekend! I would recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in our nation's history, military and ways that technology has been used. It's perfect for a quick but meaningful afternoon outing. The tour is about an hour long and the guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. I plan to return with other friends and family members.

    What a great piece of history! The only remaining Titan II transcontinental ballistic missile. Nuclear warhead has been deactivated, otherwise it looks exactly like it did before. Very informative and interactive tour by Steve and Marsha. Many thanks to the museum staff for keeping the place operational. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Well worth the drive from Phoenix.
