I-90 Exit 131 (Visitor Contact Station) is open in both directions. Exit 127 (Launch Control Facility) is closed to eastbound traffic, but open to westbound traffic. Pick up all tour tickets at exit 131. Allow extra time to travel to Delta-01 for tours.
No Tours available on Tuesday, October 7
Due to a staff shortage, there will be no tours provided of D-01 on this date. D-09, the missile silo, will remain open for self-guided tours.
A great way for kids to learn about the history of Minuteman missiles and the Cold War is through the site's Junior Ranger program. Programs for 7-11 years and 12 and up age groups are available by clicking on Be A Junior Ranger!
Those who complete the program will be issued their very own official certificate and Minuteman Missile Junior Ranger Patch!
