The Titan Missile & Pima Air & Space Museum

The Titan Missile Museum
For over 20 years during the Cold War, 54 Titan II missiles were maintained at the ready at sites throughout the U.S. This museum is an actual Titan Missile silo, the only one of these silos left in existence. Touch the world's last remaining intact Titan Missile in its silo at the Titan Missile Museum, located south of Tucson near Green Valley. One hour guided tours begin every half-hour. Walking shoes are required (no heels). The tour descends 55 steps to a level 35 feet underground.

The Pima Air & Space Museum
just southwest of Tucson's Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, is the largest privately funded air museum in the world. Among the more than 180 aircraft that highlight America's aviation history are John F. Kennedy's presidential plane and a replica of a 1903 Wright Brothers Flyer. Tours of Davis-Monthan’s 5000 aircraft Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center start at the museum. The Tucson Challenger Learning Center, at the Pima Air and Space Museum, was built just for children. The Center features a flight simulator that is part of a twelve-week school curriculum that teaches teamwork, decision making and problem solving.
Location:
in Green Valley just 20 minutes south of Tucson. Take I-10 east to I-19.
