Our Overnight will be back!
Adhering to local, state and federal guidelines, and with everyone’s health and safety in mind, the following guidelines have been implemented.
To allow for social distancing, we will operate at 25% capacity and we have set our maximum participants for Overnights to 54 total. Dedicated entrances and exits throughout the museum will be marked and stanchioned. Floor decals will also be implemented to promote social distancing and Periodic cleaning/sanitizing of the museum will take place daily.
We are accepting reservations for single Pack/Troop Overnights to take place in late summer and fall. Maximum number of participants is 54 to ensure social distancing, but the minimum participants required is lowered to 20. There is plenty of room in our hangars to seperate participants at a safe distance while sleeping.
Please see below for program details.

Boy Scouts can spend the night under the wings of history! Cubs and Webelos spend the evening learning about the collection of rare air-worthy warbirds, conducting a preflight inspection of a real plane, testing their pilot skills in our flight simulators, and learning science with more hands-on aviation STEM activities. Scouts BSA complete the requirements for the Aviation Merit Badge using our exhibit halls and flight simulators. Then, everyone sets up camp and sleeps under the wings of the historic planes like the giant B-17 Bomber!
