Trip Planner: USA / North Dakota / Cooperstown / Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site
The Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site consists of two former missile sites around Cooperstown, North Dakota that were part of North Dakota military activities during the Cold War years: the Oscar-Zero Missile Alert Facility and the November-33 Launch Facility. The site is operated by the State Historical Society of North Dakota.Plan to see Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site and other attractions that appeal to you using our Cooperstown route planner.
The two facilities are the last of the 321st Missile Wing, a cluster of intercontinental ballistic missile launch sites that were spread over a 6,500-square-mile (17,000 km2) area around the Grand Forks Air Force Base. These facilities played a major part in how the United States responded to the training and testing of responding to a nuclear threat. The Oscar-Zero Site is the last launch control center intact for the public to visit, along with the top-side access to November 33 missile facility.
Visitors access the sites through guided tours of topside facilities to learn about daily life of the people who monitored the missiles, and also can tour the underground launch control operations.

Book ahead to visit, thanks COVID. It’s a small building in the middle of nowhere, it’s very retro and preserved topside. The bunkers downstairs are impressive to see the space two man crews survived.... more »
while i didn't take the tour, i was stationed at GFAB from 8/74to 8/76. I was in security forces and spent many hours in this and the other facilities. 321st MSS ran all the sites. We Would also..... more »
This is a state park and it is much easier to access the below ground control room than the national park in South Dakota. Elevator ride to below ground control room. The key is shown in the control panel that would be turned to launch the missiles. These jobs still exist, it is thought provoking.
Excellent Historical landmark. Informative, well kept and a great experience. It’s worth the drive. A little over an hour from Grand Forks, is well worth the detour. The tour guide Ben was Friendly and answered all the questions. Very pleasant experience.
