Cactus Flat, SD – From October 19-30, the exhibit area and theater at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site's visitor center will be closed to allow for a number of needed repairs to be conducted to the exhibits.

During the closure of exhibit area, public services will be maintained at the visitor center from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. mountain time, daily. The information desk, bookstore, and restrooms will all remain open.  

The Delta-09 missile silo will remain open for its regularly scheduled hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., during the duration of the work. The Delta-01 Launch Control Facility remains closed to public tours for replacement of the fire suppression system. 

“This work is necessary to ensure that the exhibits can withstand the rigors of time and increased visitation,” said Superintendent Eric Leonard, “We regret the inconvenience to the visiting public during the fall season.” To stay informed about this work and other news about Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, the public can visit our Facebook page or the park website for more information.

Minuteman Missile National Historic Site's headquarters and visitor center is located off of exit 131, Interstate 90. The park consists of three sites along a fifteen mile stretch of Interstate 90 in Western South Dakota. Authorized by Congress in 1999, Minuteman Missile National Historic Site preserves components of the Minuteman II intercontinental ballistic missile system, interpreting the deterrent value of the land-based portion of America's nuclear defense during the Cold War era and commemorating the people and events associated with this recent period of American history. The park is open daily 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
