Schools & Youth Group Visits

Educational Tours

The Titan Missile Museum offers free admission for students to attend a pre booked visit. While admission is free, there is a $10 booking fee for each group. The tour is offered for schools and youth groups for student’s 6th -12th grade. 

This is a 45-minute tour of the underground complex of the Titan II Missile program. Students will learn what life was like in the silo for the 4 crew members and how the titan II helped keep peace through deterrent during the Cold War. After the tour, the school group is welcome to explore the topside of the complex on their own.

Titan Missile Museum limits the number of school/Youth group tours to one per day with a maximum of 30 people (27 students and 3 chaperones). Schools that would like to bring groups larger than 30 participants will need to come over multiple days or book their excess students and adults on one of the public tours for that day. Regular admission fees will apply to any students/adults booked on a public tour. 

Chaperones:

  • The tour is limited to 27 students + 3 chaperones
  • 1 chaperone for every 10 children is required.
  • Due to the limited space on the tour, we ask that schools do not bring more than the required number of chaperones

All groups must book a minimum of 3 weeks in advance. 

Accessibility:

The silo is 35 ft underground, and all tours must take the access portal which contains 55 stairs. There is no elevator access to the underground silo, all students must be able ascend and descend all 55 stairs. If your group can not access the underground silo via the stairs, please contact schooltours@pimaair.org to discuss virtual tour options.  

Facility Rules:

There is limited space underground, so we ask schools to limit the number of extra adults on the visit. We require a minimum of 1 adult per 10 students but strongly discouraged extra adults that exceed that limit.  If your group needs to have an extra adult due to special needs of a student, please contact schooltours@pimaair.org to discuss options. 

For your safety, and for preservation purposes, there are some rules that visitors must follow.

  • Visitors must be able to descend and climb 55 metal grate stair steps and stand for 45 minutes to access the underground portion of the tour. Guests unable to descend and ascend 55 stair steps or who cannot stand for 45 minutes will be limited to the surface portion of the site and will not have access to the underground area.
