Construction for one of Western South Dakota's most popular attractions, Minuteman Missile National Historic Site (NHS) is well under way and on-target for completion late this year. With an area of approximately 7500 square feet, quality displays and exhibits that the National Park Service is known for, Minuteman Missile NHS is sure to be a can't miss attraction, and only gain in popularity with families and couples looking for more than just a stop-and-see.
 
"We are the only unit of the National Park Service dedicated to telling the story of the Cold War, and South Dakota's 44th Missile Wing's role in deterring, and preventing, the Cold War from becoming World War III by being ready to retaliate if ordered by the President of the U.S." said Duane Bubac, Superintendent of Minuteman Missile National Historic Site. Visitation at Minuteman peaks during the summertime, and Ranger-guided tours are conducted daily from 8:30 am to 4 pm daily.
