  • Fascinating tour. A chance to see the only remaining site open to the public, and pretty much as it was. Well - except no actual function! There is the shell of the missile still in the silo. Our guide was outstanding. Patient and able to answer any questions. Nice introductory film. Large handbags and backpacks should be left in your car or there are keyed lockers inside. After the tour you can walk anywhere around the outside, then visit the museum shop. There are a lot of open-grate steps down (and back up) so beware of wearing heels. Not for anyone needing assistance as this is the original facility. No elevator.
  • Here on vacation and this was a unique opportunity. I brought the average age down (most tour attendees were retired men) AND my three teen daughters came with me. It was a great experience for all of us, my girls included! Would definitely recommend carving out an hour to experience this slice of history.
