Few People Know There’s A Cold War-Era Missile Museum Right Here In Arizona
Despite the fact that no overt combat took place during the Cold War, it was still a highly influential era in world history. Right here in Arizona, there’s a museum dedicated to the war—specifically, the Titan II missiles that were stored at Air Force bases across the U.S.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Make sure to stop by the gift shop before heading out! It has all sorts of cool Titan II memorabilia, as well as educational items, T-shirts, and other knick-knacks. The museum also has an antenna that guests can use to operate their HAM radios. How neat!
