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

How does the tour of the underground launch control operations at the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site in North Dakota compare to the tour of the Delta-01 underground bunker at the minuteman missile historical site in South Dakota?
