  • This place was a great experience and chilling to re-live the cold war through its history. Our guide was actually a Air Force Vet who captained such a minute man launch site, and was super helpful and had all the time in the world to answer our questions and show us the different controls and such.

  • The staff was super friendly. There is a Junior Ranger Stamp , & passport stamp at this location. Handicap accessible. Can watch flag ceremony. Staff has great information & stories to share. Closes early, 4 or 5 PM. There is a 20 min film , museum is small. Could see all in an hour. To see underground storage and living quarters you must make a reservation.
