Guided Tours for Scouts

The Hiller Aviation Museum is pleased to offer guided tours and hands-on programs to Scouts at all levels. These tours and programs give Scouts the opportunity to experience aviation in a new way and may help satisfy the requirements for certain Cub Scout Belt Loops or Brownie Try-Its. Reservations are required for all tours and programs and must be made at least two weeks in advance.

Scout admissions are subject to group visit guidelines as outlined below. However, Scouts and their adult leaders may visit the Museum informally, without group size requirements or advanced reservations, on Scout Saturdays and on Home School Mondays. School admission fees are honored until 5 PM on Home School Mondays.
