AAA Editor Notes
Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is just n. of I-90 exit 131. The visitor center offers exhibits and short videos about the Cold War and how the Minuteman missiles preserved peace. Guided 30-minute tours include the formerly operational Delta-01 Launch Control Facility and underground Launch Control Center, which once controlled 10 Minuteman II missiles.

In addition, visitors can tour Launch Facility Delta-09 (a missile silo) on their own; a self-guiding cell phone tour is available seasonally. Delta-09 is at I-90 exit 116, approximately 6 miles east from the town of Wall. During the winter it is open Monday through Friday, weather permitting.

NOTE: All tour participants must be physically able to climb up two 15-foot ladders unassisted in the event of an elevator failure.
