Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station & Peterson AFB Tours
The 21st Space Wing appreciates your interest in a tour of Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station and/or Peterson AFB, however, we cannot support any public tours of either installation.
Since 2011, only a handful of public tours are supported if they are deemed at the highest possible value of orienting a particular group to know the installation’s mission and operations.
The security vetting, staff escorts, sanitizing and pausing of sensitive material within the tour route puts a strain on manpower and real-world operations. We just don’t have the resources to support all of the tours we would like.
We very much appreciate your interest and would love to highlight the incredible mission our Airmen are able to perform while educating you and your group on the great deal of work that is required to keep watch over North America.
In light of this situation, we recommend you look to our Peterson Air Force Base Museum. There they can offer an in depth tour of our base’s air park and educate your group on the rich history of Peterson AFB and Cheyenne Mountain AFS. They can be reached by visiting www.petemuseum.org or calling them at 719-556-8314.
If you wish to speak with our community engagement chief concerning this decision, please call 719-556-5185.
