America’s Ace in the Hole: North Dakota and the Cold War
Permanent Exhibit
The Cold War lasted nearly 50 years, and North Dakota’s landscape is marked with its legacy. North Dakota’s newest state historic site introduces visitors to the state’s role in international relations and the significance of missile installations on North Dakota’s history and culture. This exhibit features historic photographs, archival images, and an award-winning video (links below). The site also received the 2010 Governor’s Travel and Tourism award as the state’s outstanding attraction of the year.

The orientation video available to visitors of the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile state historic site gives visitors a brief glimpse of the cold war and North Dakota's role that is ongoing today.
