Plan Your Visit

A visit to the park provides an opportunity to explore the Minuteman II system's role as a nuclear deterrent during the Cold War and visit sites rarely seen by civilians while in use, but that nevertheless loomed large on the geo-political landscape. Those with a special interest in the Cold War or nuclear weapons could spend a half day or more at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site.

The park consists of three sites along a fifteen mile stretch of Interstate 90 in western South Dakota: the Visitor Center, Launch Control Facility Delta-01 and the Delta-09 Missile Silo. Please visit our Operating Hours and Seasons page for current information.
