We were impressed how the safety issues and double verifications should work. A very interesting tour on a originally military site near Tucson. We recommend a visit for all who wants to live in...

Fascinating facility that lends visitors a clear picture of how serious the Cold War really was. Whether or not you lived through that time period, I recommend this museum to gain a better grasp on the circumstances, and how the U.S. and U.S.S.R. were armed to the hilt to deter each other from launching an attack. The missile itself, as well as the control center, are well below ground. The grounds still feature the motion sensors that guarded the missile silo (don't worry; they're not active!). Definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere nearby or traveling through on I-19.
Extremely knowledgeable and passionate tour guide added so much value to this already incredible place. It was surreal to hear about what life was like living on this base, especially from someone who lived it for 4 years. I was blown away. This is definitely a must visit place for anyone in the Tucson area for sure!
