Dear Museum Patrons:   As of 3/18/2020, the Titan Missile Museum is closed and all tours have been suspended indefinitely.  The situation with the current public health concerns over the COVID-19 virus is one we are monitoring closely and we are following the guidance of local public health agencies.  Please bear with us as we work through the cancellations.  We will post updates about the resumption of tours on our social media accounts as they become available.  Thank you for supporting the Titan Missile Museum.  We hope you and yours remain safe and healthy and that we’ll see you at the museum in the future.

Ham Radio Operators at
Titan Missile Museum

Use Our Discone Antenna

Ham Radio Operators, you can now broadcast and listen on the discone antenna at the Titan Missile Museum.

When the Titan II became operational in 1963, its communication system included a large, broadband discone antenna that is still standing today.

Built by Collins Radio Company, the antenna is 80 feet tall and has a large crown, enabling it to radiate signals over a wide range of frequencies.

If you’re an amateur radio operator, you can use the antenna free of charge when the museum is open.
