The Titan Missile Museum offers free or discounted admission for schools and youth groups between 6th and 12th grade. All tours must be pre booked using our online system a minimum of 3 weeks out. These tours are held prior to the museum opening at 9am. We unfortunately cannot accommodate the free/discounted tours during regular business hours.
This is a 30-45 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 deterrence during the Cold War. After the tour, the school group is welcome to explore the topside of the complex on their own.
Space is limited on this tour due to the size of the silo and we can only accommodate 30 people total on the tour. This is 27 students and 3 chaperones. No exceptions can be made to the size of the tour due to the space inside the silo. If your group is larger then 30 you will need to either book over multiple days to receive the discount or pay regular admission rates and book a private tour.
All Fieldtrip bookings should be booked via the online booking site. Use the “Book Now” button at the bottom of the page.
