    Titan Missile Museum: Home is the place. Apparently, it was used in Star Trek: First Contact. I told my college friend about it who was embarking on a cross-county road trip and he was able to make it. He likes things related to aviation, engineering, the space program, military hardware, etc.

    I'd like to go some day.

    I went there in 2001 for the quick regular tour, than again in 2008 for the top to bottom tour that was from 8am - 1 pm.
    The tour was pretty cool.
    I took some video and pics of the top to bottom tour including a video clip like the one you posted of missile launch.

    Hope you get to go someday.
