Titan Missile Museum
Hide under your desk if Russia launches!
The Titan Missile Museum, also known as Air Force Facility Missile Site 8 or as Titan II ICBM site 571-7 will be the Tucson Illini Club's destination on Saturday February 17th. At the Titan Missile Museum, visitors journey through time to stand on the front line of the Cold War. This preserved Titan II missile site is all that remains of the 54 Titan II missile sites that were on alert across the United States from 1963 to 1987.
This one-of-a kind museum gives visitors a rare look at the technology used by the United States to deter nuclear war. What was once one of America's most top secret places is now a National Historic Landmark, fulfilling its new mission of bringing Cold War history to life for millions of visitors from around the world.
Your Tucson Illini Club has pre-purchased all 20 tickets so we will have a dedicated Illini only guided tour. For those of you who have never been to this museum, it's a must see! So, get your tickets now.
*** This tour will take us down the missile silo. You must be able to descend and climb multiple flights of stairs
during the tour, and you must also be able to climb six 15-foot ladders,
one after the other, in an emergency. The museum is very strict about this
physical requirement. If staff has any doubt about a visitor's ability
to climb six 15-foot ladders, the visitor will not be allowed to go on
the tour. In addition, the minimum age for a visitor is 10 years old. Large purses, bags, camera bags and backpacks are also prohibited on this tour.
