Experience History Together

The National Museum of World War II Aviation offers visitors an opportunity to experience the war through the eyes of the men and women who lived it. A guided group tour is an excellent opportunity for schools, camps, service organizations, travel groups and large families to receive a personal introduction to World War II aviation and history.

Schedule A Group Tour

Private group tours of 20 or more visitors may be scheduled subject to the availability of staff.  The museum’s expert docents will guide your group through the story of World War II Aviation and an exclusive tour through the WestPac restoration facility.  

All group tours start promptly at the pre-arranged time.  The guided portion of the tour lasts approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.  Visitors are welcome to continue exploring the museum on their own once the guided tour is over.

Group Tour Admission Price:
$12 Per Person
