This military installation was created during World War II and over the years most of the missile systems in the U.S. arsenal were tested at WSMR (V-2, Nike, Viking, Corporal, Lance and Multiple Launch Rocket Systems).

The most impressive part of the museum is the missile park that includes more than 60 different rockets used in combat from WWII to the Gulf War. These rockets are placed outside the museum building, most of them pointing towards the sky as if ready to blast off.
