Pima Air and Space Museum allows for schools/youth groups to bring in a sack lunch during their visit. If your group will be bringing a sack lunch, please know that outside food is not permitted in the Flight Grill or on the tables outside of the grill. You must eat your lunch at one of our picnic areas. We have a small picnic area outside in the parking lot or a small picnic area inside the Museum to the left of the Space Gallery.  We do not reserve either of these areas; they are first come first serve. The schools are responsible for transporting their lunches to and from the picnic area. Pima Air and Space Museum can not store lunches for schools. We suggest schools bring wagons, to help transport lunches to the picnic areas.

School/Youth Groups can purchase a box lunch through the Flight Grill. Please note, this is a third party vendor and all payments must be made directly to the Flight Grill. Pima Air and Space Museum can not accept payment on behalf of The Flight Grill. 

All box lunch orders must be submitted at least 3 business days in advance. If the school/group cancels the visit or meal order less than 3 business days in advance the school/group is still responsible for the cost of the meals.
