What's Happening

Being temporarily closed as a public health precaution in relation to COVID-19 has not stopped us from sharing the Air Force story with online visitors from around the world. In addition to continuing our heritage stewardship duties, we have expanded our digital museum experience through the virtual tour. The virtual tour allows visitors to take a 360-degree, self-guided tour of the entire museum. Icons indicate hotspots where the visitor can get additional information such as videos, audio and even access online educational activities such as lesson plans, word searches and coloring sheets.
The Air Force Museum Store, located inside the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, is once again able to accept and ship online-only orders. Orders will begin shipping on Friday, May 1st. Shop at
Visit our Kids & Parents page for family-friendly coloring pages, word searches, lesson plans and resources. Also, check out our Virtual Tour and Cockpit 360 images
