Located just off I-90 at exit 116, visitors can tour Launch Facility (missile silo) Delta-09 on their own via a cell phone tour option, available May through October. Delta-09 is open year round weather permitting.

While at Delta-09 visitors can look down through a glass enclosure and see and Minuteman II training missile in the silo.

The cell phone tour leads visitors through a series of stops that provides historic background and interpretation of site operations.

Feel free to listen to or download the Cell Phone tour sound files below. A complete sound file of all stops is located at the top of the list otherwise individual stops are available below.
