Titan Top-to-Bottom Tour

Titan Top-to-Bottom Tour

Location

Titan Missile Museum

Description

Along with every area covered in our other tours, you'll also get to explore all 8 levels of the underground silo — something most people will never see.  From level 1 where you'll view the silo closure door opening mechanism, to level 3 where the massive diesel generator is located, to level 8 more than 140 feet (aproximately 43 meters) underground, you'll see all the equipment that was necessary to keep the site operational during its lifetime. Other stops include silo level 7 where you'll enter the launch duct and stand directly beneath the missile.

Make sure to arrive by 7:40am on Saturday dates, and 7:45 am on all other dates or your reservation will be forfeit.
