One-hour guided tours of the missile site are offered daily on a first come, first served basis every day of the year except for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The first tour of the day always begins at 9 am and the last tour begins either at 4 pm in the summertime or 4:30 pm in the wintertime. New tours always begin on the hour, and during the winter months, new tours begin on the half-hour as well.
On this tour, you'll stand on top of the silo viewing platform and observe the Titan II missile in the underground launch duct. Then, using the Access Portal, you'll descend 35 feet underground into the hardened missile complex. Once underground, you’ll walk through the Blastlock Area on your way to the Launch Control center where you'll see a simulated launch of the missile. Finally, using the Long Cableway, you'll visit level 2 of the missile silo where you'll have another view of the missile in the launch duct.
This tour lasts approximately one hour and is handicapped accessible. It is a walking tour, with preplanned stops along the way which allow you to view important areas of the missile site. The daily one-hour guided tours are free to members of the Arizona Aerospace Foundation. If you are not a member of the Foundation, click here for admission prices for the One-Hour Guided Tour.
