Collections:

Minuteman Missile NHS currently has over 4500 artifacts in the collection. The majority of these artifacts were the furnishings and other miscellaneous items that were transferred from the U. S. Air Force with the buildings. These items range from the couches in the day room to the water testing equipment used to monitor the well water. The proper management and storage of these artifacts is an essential part of our cultural resources program. You will have the opportunity to see many of these items as you tour our site.
