Group Overnights

 

As the doors close and the lights dim, your group is in for the flight of a lifetime with an exclusive overnight at the Lone Star Flight Museum.

Soar through our doors and experience everything the Museum has to offer including flight simulators, glider building and competition, museum knowledge hunt, and movie viewing. Then settle down in the Waltrip Hangar under the wings of our B—17 and fall asleep amongst our historic aircraft collection.

Museum staff and volunteers lead programs and you never know when a pilot will make a landing!
