Missile Park at White Sands Missile Range
Welcome to Missile ParkThe mission of the White Sands Missile Range Museum is to collect, curate and exhibit the historical artifacts and other material culture items necessary to interpret the prehistoric, historic and modern occupation and use of the lands occupied by, or in some cases adjacent to, the current 3200 square mile installation.

White Sands Missile Range LogoPrimary attention will be devoted to educating military personnel in particular, and the region's civilian population in general, on the Army's 19th century Indian War campaigns in the Tularosa Basin; the Trinity Site Test; and the rocket, missile and other weapons development projects carried on at White Sands after World War II and during the ensuing Cold War period. More recent test and evaluation activities will be addressed as appropriate.

White Sands Missile Range Museum LogoOutside the museum is a missile park displaying a variety of missiles and rockets tested at White Sands. These include everything from the WAC Corporal and Loon (U.S. version of the V-1) to a Pershing II and Patriot. More than 50 items are on display. To view some of the missiles and rockets in the missile park see the Gallery below.
