Group tours at the Aviation History & Technology Center are available for your next group outing. Group tours are available for any size group wanting to surround themselves with the excitement of the skies while keeping your feet on the ground. These engaging outings encourage imagination, offer plenty of learning opportunities, and challenge participants to dream.
Group tours are an excellent option for schools, afterschool care centers, Boy/Girl Scouts activities, active senior living facilities, JROTC squadrons, CAP squadrons, professional organizations, and many others.
Current guided tours provide a general overview of aviation, the featured aircraft, and related history. More specialized topic tours are in development so please check back soon.

- Guided tours last approximately 1.5 hours, depending on the level of engagement and questions from your group.
