Private Group Tour
A private Docent tour is complimentary when you book your group at least two weeks in advance of your visit. Tours encompass the Great Gallery and Red Barn, and can be customized to each group's interest and schedule. A typical tour is an hour in length, and leads visitors through the evolution of aviation by examining the aircraft in the Museum's world-class collection, including the famous Blackbird, the only remaining Boeing 80A, and the Aerocar III.
Public programs and theatrical performances run nearly every weekend. Public programs range from lectures and panel discussions featuring notable aviation and space personalities to visiting aircraft and feature films, with special programs on Memorial Day, Father's Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day. The Museum's drama troupe, Amazing Skies Theater, performs scripted fifteen minute plays and improvised, living history characters in scenarios related to the Museum's exhibits. Performance times vary, but usually run weekends during the hours of 12 p.m.- 4 p.m. throughout the Museum. A complete calendar of upcoming public programs is available by clicking here.
