Tours & Outreach Programs

Guided Tours

Reserve your guided tour by one of the staff or docents at the museum. This opportunity provides you with a one-on-one, in-person guide through the intricate history of women in air and space. Hear how these women's accomplishments and challenges impacted the world we live in today, and the history being made today.

Cost will be $10 per guest and tours last between 70-90 minutes. The first tour during regular hours begins at 10:30 and the final tour starts at 2:30. However, we are eager to work with you to find the right fit for your group and schedule!

We ask that you call ahead to schedule your guided tour to ensure that a staff member or docent is available to engage your group. Payment is due at the time of your reservation.
