  • 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. If you have time - I really recommend checking this place out!
