Tour the missile site with Yvonne Morris, the Museum’s Director and a former Titan II Missile Combat Crew Commander. Part of the tour takes place on level 2 of the launch duct, an area that has rarely been open to the public. While visitors stand just inches away from the largest land-based missile ever deployed by the US, Yvonne will share her unique perspective on the Titan II and its mission of peace through deterrence.
No other tour brings visitors this close to the missile. You don’t want to miss it!

The Director’s Tour is offered on the first Thursday morning of each month at 9:00 AM and lasts approximately two hours.
