Today I’m going to show you the Titan Missile Museum in Tucson. I took Brady there on a date last week.
The Titan Missile Museum is a unique to the area bona fide time capsule. Of the 54 missile installations (Arizona, New Mexico and Kansas), the Tucson location is the only one preserved and open to the public following the Cold War. They have a program where you can spend the night at the museum.
Definitely on my bucket list!! Would you do that? You sleep 35 feet underground inside the only missile silo open to the public. Awesome.
If you can’t visit the museum easily, you can follow them on Facebook. I browsed their online albums and loved the pictures from their trip to the boneyard in Tucson. I made a list of science and interesting people for Brady to follow and add to online. I started the list when he was 6, he will take it over and make it his own when he is ready.
On our way out we picked up a copy of the Junior Missileer book. You can download your own copy here. If you like space/science games, here is a NASA link to some games you can play online over break. You can join NASA kid’s club here and find other games.
I hope this mini-peek inside a super cool museum will inspire you to visit!
