Peer Into a Missile Silo

It was closed and gated up when we were there on 5/17. Gates going into the lot and around the silo were locked. No signage anywhere. Looked deserted for a while with weeds growing everywhere.

[Marylee Gasaway, 05/25/2022]

The site is part of the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and is still open. May 17 was a Tuesday. The silo site is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Peer into a Missile Silo

It's a nice, quick stop. Bathrooms, and you can walk around by yourself. Nothing too special, but pretty powerful at the same time.
