Our exhibit galleries have a lifetime's worth of learning opportunities in themselves. And our guided tours bring the stories of flight to life! Our docent-guided tours give visitors insight into the unique people, aircraft and spacecraft that made (and continue to make) history. Our docents are highly dedicated experts with an extensive knowledge of air and space history, technology, and interpretive skills.

The tours are designed for Grade 3 and up: younger students are welcome to take a self-guided tour of the museum with their teachers.
