Cactus Flat, South Dakota – During the upcoming holiday season, Minuteman Missile National Historic Site will be closed on Christmas Day, December 25, 2014 and New Years Day, January 1, 2015. The Minuteman Missile Visitor Center, Launch Control Facility Delta-01 and Launch Facility (Missile Silo) Delta-09 will also be closed on these days. The park is open during the winter season, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Ranger guided tours of Launch Control Facility Delta-01 are available on weekdays at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Launch Facility (Missile Silo) Delta-09 is also open to visitors from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is headquartered on the north side of exit 131, Interstate 90 where the Visitor Center is located. The park was established by Congress in 1999 to tell the story of the Minuteman ICBM system, including the development of the system, the personnel who served at the 1,000 sites throughout the upper Great Plains, and the impact of the system on the communities nearby. Administration of Launch Control Facility Delta-01 and Launch Facility (Missile Silo) Delta-09 was transferred from the United States Air Force in September 2002 to the National Park Service.
