What to Expect

45-minute guided Tour

Go underground and back in time on the 45-minute guided tour. You’ll descend 35 feet into the missile complex, visit the launch control center, and experience a simulated launch of the missile. Then you’ll journey down the cableway to level 2 of the missile silo to get an up-close look at the Titan II missile itself. This tour lets you experience Cold War paranoia and American ingenuity while walking in the footsteps of the brave men and women who operated America’s largest land-based missile ever deployed.

Don’t forget to add an Audio Tour device to your visit as you explore the rest of the facility after going down into the silo! 

*Note: Visitors who are not able to descend and climb 55 stair steps for the guided tour can still enjoy the surface portion of the missile site.

Self-guided Topside Tour

Guests are encouraged to explore the surface of the complex after their tour of the silo. On the topside, visitors will see the alarm systems, known as tipsies, that secured the missile silo door, get to look at the engine up-close, and more. There is also a spectacular view of the missile from up above! Looking down into the 146-foot missile silo you will see the Titan II Missile standing tall as it did on Alert for over 20 years.

Visitors can learn about the Titan II missile sites on the Topside Only Tour without the underground Guided Tour for just $7.


An Audio Tour device that gives guests an in-depth description and history of some of our topside exhibits is included in the topside tour. You can also request this device for an additional $7 if you take the underground Guided Tour. 

  • For a seamless listening experience, we recommend one device for every two people in your group (though more people can listen at a time).
  • While not required to hear the audio tour, the devices are compatible with headphones/earbuds that have a jack (not compatible with wireless devices).
  • Devices are available to check out at the counter in admissions. They are available on a first come, first served basis, and cannot be reserved ahead of time.
