Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is a preserved ICBM silo open to the public just north of the Badlands on I-90. Since the 1960s,
active ICBMs topped with nuclear warheads have been stationed 'hidden in plain sight' all over the Great Plains. Active silos have
numbered over 1000 over the decades, with about 450 remaining in service as of 2018. Think about that as you drive past them without
knowing it on the Plains!
