  • Got personal tour from Rob Turnbow! Very knowledgeable and thorough. Best air tour ever! Learned many things we didn't know about the base.

  • The Malmstrom Museum is on an active base, so you will need to check in at the visitor station first to gain access to the museum. It also advised to call ahead to make sure Rob the curator is there as he is a one man show. The museum is small but provides a great deal of information about the bases mission on operating the minute man 3 strategic defense missile system. Rob shared a lot of history of the base and was patient with kids and their questions as we toured the inner displays. The air park has a few static aircraft to check out in of the different aircraft that once used the base. An interesting fact on the base is in WWII the Soviets came to get aircraft as part of the lend lease act.
  • If you're not military, you need to go to the visitors center near the entrance to need a pass, but it's free and a cool museum about what they do on Malmstrom. The models are especially cool and the history was interesting. Definitely a stop for an air and space nerd!
