Group Visits

Guided Tours

Guided tours may be scheduled during regular museum hours and last approximately 45 minutes. Tours focus on early aviation, local history, and the creative genius of Glenn H. Curtiss.


Groups who would like to lead their own tours through the museum space must schedule a self-guided tour with the Education Department by phone or email. This allows us to prepare for the group and to assure access to all Museum exhibition spaces, including the Restoration Shop. Please make reservations for self-guided visits at least two weeks in advance.
