This is such an interesting bit of history! I had no idea that there was once a missile base in the Everglades. I enjoyed learning about how it worked and the training and technology they used to keep us safe.

My husband loved it. It's historic and interesting learning the information and what our service men went though back then.

The park service does an excellent job with the history of what took place here during the Cold War . I highly recommend this and would also like to thank the volunteers whom help the park service maintain this exhibit.

Hello! We are planning a trip to the park in less than two weeks; and want to tour this missle site! I do NOT find it on the maps. Can you tell us how to get to it and it seems that one can view it from like 10-2 or take a tour once a day...can that be explained, also? We really want the ranger part of it for the best information!!! THanks!!
