Since opening to the public in 1966, the museum has introduced millions of visitors to the history of rocketry and space flight.

Our goal is to collect, restore, and exhibit items of historical significance which relate to the development and heritage of U.S. Air Force space launch activities.

Our facilities include the Space & Missile Museum exhibits at Launch Complex 26, Launch Complex 5/6, and the surrounding areas as well as the Sands Space History Center.

We’re passionate about sharing the history of the Air Force’s space and missile programs.
