Plan Your Visit


A visit to the park provides an opportunity to explore the Minuteman II system's role as a nuclear deterrent during the Cold War and visit sites rarely seen by civilians while in use, but that nevertheless loomed large on the geo-political landscape. Those with a special interest in the Cold War or nuclear weapons could spend a half day or more at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site.

The park has three main features, the Minuteman Missile Visitor Center, Launch Control Facility Delta-01 and Launch Facility (Missile Silo) Delta-09. Please visit Operating Hours and Seasons for current information.
