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. We can accommodate up to 120 students at any one time. If you are interested in this, ask our tour scheduler about special considerations for large groups.”
