The Minuteman Missile visitor contact station is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. During our winter season (November through March), weekend hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's days.

Visitors can watch an orientation film which gives a virtual tour of the sites that make up the park. There are also exhibits with original artifacts which tell the history of the Minuteman missile system and the Cold War.

The contact station is south of Exit 131, just off I-90 in western South Dakota, beside the Conoco gas station. This is 75 miles east of Rapid City.
