SCHOOL/YOUTH GROUP TOURS OF THE PIMA AIR & SPACE MUSEUM
The Pima Air & Space Museum is one of the premier aviation museums in North America—don't let your students miss this opportunity. We waive the admission fee (i.e., it's FREE!) for K-12 school and youth groups (Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Campfire Girls, home-school groups, 4H, Junior Achievement, etc.) with advanced reservations including the recommended number of chaperones. (Additional chaperones pay the regular prices.)
Tour Options include:
- Self-guided Exploration of 3 aviation hangars, the Space Gallery and outdoor aircraft displays. Available 9:00am-4:00pm everyday except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Reservations required. A school scavenger hunt is available to download (plus answers).
- Docent-led General Aviation Tour—Grades K-5
- Docent-led History of Aviation Tour—Grades 6-12
- Docent-led World War II Aviation Tour—Grades 7-12 (maximum of 60 students)
Docent-led tours are only offered Thursday and Friday mornings at 10:00am. All school/youth tours must be scheduled at least 30 days in advance. The tours feature an introduction to the 4 forces of flight and a docent-guided tour of our exhibition hangars.
Often the cost of transportation makes it more efficient to bring 2 or more classes at once; if you are interested in this, ask our tour scheduler about special considerations for large groups.
