We went to the missile alert facility site - known as Oscar zero to checkout a part of the Cold War history - mutually assured destruction philosophy! The tour takes about an hour 30 minutes topside and 30 minutes in down below - about 60...More

Even though the elevator just quit working we had a good topside tour. Interesting place and nice to learn how the sites operated. We wet a bit out of our way to visit and it was worth it.

I can't add much that anyone else hasn't already said about this site. It is a low-traffic area so the tours are very informal and intimate. My family (seven people) got our own tour as we walked in the door, but later as we were...More

This is an EXCELLENT way to learn the history of ICBMs and the cold war. You start with a 20 minute video on cold war and nuclear bomb history. Then a tour guide takes you through the top side structure of a minuteman ICBM launch...More

We made a special trip to the site, which is just about necessary. You don't go to Oscar-Zero by accident. The fee is reasonable for the tour, and the tour is comprehensive at one hour in duration, focusing on the interior of the building and...More

The two sites offer complementary experiences. Delta-01 was built in 1962 and reflects the original design of the minuteman system. The control center is 31 feet underground and a single cramped space; support equipment... More

The tour is about an hour--depends a lot on how many questions and such there are. Most days there aren't many people (you can imagine, since by definition these sites were out in the middle of nowhere) so you won't stand... More
