Long Distance Learning:

Here at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, we work hard to accommodate all visitors. Now, with Long Distance Learning technology, we offer educational programs to schools from all over.

Through an Internet connection, students can participate in a "virtual" ranger-guided program, projected live from the underground Launch Control Center, Delta-01.

Due to staffing and the onset of our busy summer visitation, Long Distance Learning programs can be scheduled between September 2012 and May 1st 2013. For more information and details, please contact Park Ranger Butch Davis. The park phone number is (605) 433-5552.
