Questions > FAQ Topic

Are there any tours or events scheduled during my visit?

The free USAF Heritage Tour begins at 1:30 p.m. daily, with an additional tour at 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays. All tours begin at the entrance to the Early Years Gallery (through the Gift Shop and turn right). Advance registration is not necessary.

A Behind the Scenes Tour takes place at 12:15 p.m. every Friday. This tour gives visitors a look at the museum's restoration hangars. The tour is free, but advanced registration is required. Click here for additional instructions and to register online or call (937) 656-9436 for more information.

School and youth group tours must be arranged through the museum's Education Division.

Please visit the News & Events page for information about upcoming events.

How long does it take to see everything?

It is difficult to say, but we recommend planning for the entire day.

Why must participants be at least 12 years of age to go on a Behind the Scenes Tour?

The rule set forward regarding age restrictions for the Behind the Scenes Tour is a regulation implemented by OSHA. The restoration area is an active, industrial work environment and as such is subject to policies prohibiting persons under the age of 12 from entering.
