Swing Time in the Skies

Take a trip back to a time when the aircraft were spectacular and learn why our heroes never let us down. See one of the largest collections of flying WWII military aircraft in the world, and hear stories of contributions made by the men and women of aviation to our country.

Meet Rosie the Riveter or a Mustang Fighter Pilot. Make your day complete by adding a World War II-themed boxed lunch.

Children’s Tours

The museum is happy to host scout troops working on merit badges and school field trips. Tours can be customized to the children’s age group and can include things like scavenger hunts, visits from a pilot or Rosie the Riveter, or just about anything else you can dream up.

Custom Tours

Arrange your tour to coincide with one of our many events, or ask us to help you customize a tour to ensure your group learns all if can about a particular part of military aviation history. Want an inside look at our World War I aircraft and the earliest days of aerial combat? Have a particular interest in our British collection? Then let’s talk about the Battle of Britain and include a ride on our authentic English double-decker bus.

Does our unique Luftwaffe collection appeal to you? Then we’ll take you inside the newly reconstructed 1934 Cottbus hangar. Let’s talk about how we can customize a tour to meet your group’s needs.
