Our Museum Exploration programs are chaperone-led experiences that encourage students to dig for information with a variety of challenges and objectives. Our self-guided tours start with a brief introduction from a Museum Docent who will provide the appropriate resources for your program, then students have the freedom to explore the Museum with their chaperone! Our docent tours take you through exhibit highlights, illustrating important facts and interesting stories behind the history of flight.

For all Museum Explorations programs, 1 chaperone for every 5 students is required.
