Volunteer opportunities abound at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site.
Volunteers are vital to us in our mission of providing programs and services to our visitors. Our VIP's (volunteers-in-parks) help conduct tours, provide historic interpretation at the missile silo and Delta-01, and answer visitor questions at the contact station about Minuteman missiles and the Cold War. Many of these volunteers once worked with Minuteman missiles and offer a unique perspective on how the Cold War was really fought.
In addition, volunteers have assisted with administrative tasks, cataloging museum artifacts and completing maintenance projects.
If you would like to volunteer at Minuteman Missile NHS, contact the Park VIP Coordinator at (605) 433-5552, ext. 242 or e-mail us
