My husband and I lived through those scary times, so we do appreciate how serious the threat was. We visited the Visitor’s Center and the Delta 9 Silo site, both free, no tickets required. The Visitor’s Center’s historical film and displays brought back the memories of those times. But now, looking back we realize how serious the situation really was. We learned about the behind the scenes information about the people, procedures and technology behind this extraordinary effort to protect our country.

Visiting the Delta 9 Silo was even more incredible and was the highlight of our visit. We heard a presentation from a Ranger who was an actual Minuteman. He explained a lot of fascinating information about the silo, how it worked in its day, and about today’s capabilities by comparison. We were able to ask lots of questions and the Ranger was both knowledgeable and insightful. Imagine getting the inside scoop about cold war history from someone who was directly involved!

One word of warning, we saw conflicting hours of operation on the NPS website vs. Google Maps. We like using Google Maps because they seem to update their information more often than a lot of websites, and it gives us confirmation on the times and days these places are open. NPS says they are closed Monday and Tuesday, Google Maps says they are closed Sunday and Monday. We didn’t take the chance and visited on Saturday. The Visitor’s Center is open 8am to 4pm. The Delta 9 Silo is open 9am to 3pm.

We were staying in Custer, SD to do all of the National Parks/Monuments/Historic Sites we could and made the 90 minute drive to the western end of Badlands NP, through the park, then stopped by the visitor center here before looping back. I am a planner and most of our trip was started 9 months before we went. I started booking tickets for tours as soon as they became available. The website for this kept stating they weren't open for Delta-01 site tours yet, but to check back soon, as they were planning to reopen this summer. I checked weekly, sometimes daily. By the time tickets were finally available, they were snapped up and nothing was available the week we were there. I didn't tell my son we had planned to go here and I'm glad I didn't or he would have been very disappointed. When we arrived at the visitor center, however, there had been a power failure in the area and they had just reopened, but the Delta-01 site remained closed, so I guess it was a bit of a blessing we hadn't gotten those tickets. The short video about the site and the Minuteman missiles was quite interesting and the displays on site were very good. It was quite busy though, so a bit hard to see everything. We did go down the road to the Delta-09 site and were very impressed by the self-guided cellphone tour. Though some people had no clue what to do, despite instructions being on a printed sign! We took our time and listened to each station's information. People came and went - never more than another family or two there at the same time as us. We learned a lot and my 11 year old, who hasn't been alive for any of the time that these were on standby, was fascinated. Overall, the stops we did get to make were very good and FREE, so you can't beat that for a very interesting history lesson.

A good stop right off I-90, and important history to know. The visitor center has a nice film and a small exhibit, which was pretty packed when we were there. We weren't able to get a ticket for the Delta-01 launch control, but drove to the Delta-09 silo (a different site down the road a bit) and explored there a bit. Would have been really unnerving to live right next to those silos.

If you are visiting the Badlands this is not to be missed and should be included in your itinerary. If you are interested in history, you gain a thorough understanding of the Cold War. Growing up under the constant threat of nuclear war it is surreal to view the interpretive displays in the visitor center. If you plan ahead I definitely recommend the tour of the Delta-01 Launch Control Center. Buy your tickets early (90 days advanced online) you won't regret it. We spent a few hours viewing all three sites.

I wish I could give it more stars!! This was so much fun! (Of course, I am an Army nerd who specialized in nuclear weapons, among other things.) It was so much fun to take the tour and listen to the guided tour over the smart phone. We visited on a last-minute whim, and did not have a reservation to stop and take a much more detailed tour. Initially, I did not think we would be able to stop, but my wife subtly moved some things around in our schedule and surprised me with the visit. If we ever find ourselves back in the area, I will want to schedule some time, get the reservation, and see as much as I can possibly see. I did get to pick up a stuffed "Bert the Turtle." (Very cool piece of American history. If you are not familiar with him, Google him and watch the old Cold War movies that were designed to educate our kids and the American population about what to do in the event of a Soviet nuclear attack!) DON'T MISS THIS!

Very well presented and educational. Our Ranger did a virtual tour of the site we wanted to visit as tickets are sold out for the next two months. A retired Major Minuteman was also there to assist. As someone who lived during the Cold War, this added to my respect of the USA Air Force.

We did this right before entering Badlands NP. I highly recommend doing it this way as they close around 4 pm. The exhibit does a great job explaining the Cold War, the arms race, and what it was like for the Missileers who had to be ready to obey a launch command. We all found this extremely interesting. Be sure to visit the Delta-09 missile site a few miles away and do a cell phone tour. It helps younger kids/teens understand everything better. However, the missile site closes at 3 pm.

Close to the North Entrance of Badlands NP, the Minuteman Missile NHS gives you a great history of the cold war with a lot of recent history about arms reductions and decommissioning. No tours to the launch center were available during our visit.

I visited the Badlands National Park entering through the east entrance. Located near by is the Minuteman National Historic Site. I didn’t know what to expect when I stopped at the Visitors Center but after talking with one of the ranger, I had a better understanding of what this site has to offer. I started my visit by watching a very interesting and informative video about our missile defenses during the cold war. I would highly recommend watching the video before going through the museum. The movie gives you a better understanding about the artifacts that you are about to see. The museum is very well laid out and features several artifacts relating to our Cold War defensives and just how close we came to war during the Cuban Missile Crisis. This was a time when fallout shelters were a reality, and every American knew where they needed to go during a nuclear attack. Even though the Visitor’s center museum is rather small it is the displays are well laid out. I am a reader, and it took me about an hour for make my way through the museum. Most people can probably do it in 30-minutes or so. The actual missile silo and launch facility is located a few miles to the west of the visitor’s center. Unfortunately, during my visit those tours were not being offered due to COVID. You should allow about an hour or less to tour the exhibits at the visitors center. If you are able to include the Silo and Launch facility I would allow at least 2-hours for for both sites. It you are travel along Interstate 90 or planning a visit to the Badlands National Park, then I would highly recommend a stop at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site.

This is a very well done exhibit regarding our missile defense systems during the Cold War with the Soviet Union. We didn't take a guided tour, but the exhibit easy to follow. It examines the history, technology and logistics that went into the site's development. It should be required viewing for every citizen. Thankfully tensions deescalated and no missiles were ever fired.
