Private Tram Tours are for groups that would like a private, one-on-one guided tour of the museum’s outdoor aircraft aboard our open-air tram. The tram can hold up to 35 passengers. If you need a wheelchair-accessible tram, the museum can accommodate that, however, the wheelchair-accessible tram can only hold one wheelchair and a maximum of 16 passengers. If your group is visiting on a bus and exceeds 35 guests, we can accommodate your tram tour on your bus as long as it has a PA system we can use.
