PLAN A VISIT

What to Expect From Your Visit

We have worked closely with the Smithsonian Institution, NASA, and the U.S. Air Force Museum to assemble on the finest collection of aerospace artifacts in the central United States. We house over  63,000 sq. ft. of exhibits under one roof and showcase thousands of items representing the evolution of aviation and spaceflight.

 

From the Wright Brothers to the Space Shuttle, our galleries are grouped into the following categories:

  • General Stafford

  • Early Aviation

  • Rocket Engines

  • Space Exploration

  • Space Shuttle

  • Modern Aviation

 

Coming soon to the Stealth Gallery is the 'Raven Beauty' F-117!

We are proud to represent General Stafford and proud to share all of our national treasures with you.

We are always happy to see our Harvest Hosts guests!

If you are looking for new opportunities to explore the RV lifestyle, stay with us overnight and enjoy the museum at the same time!

 

Reservations are made through Harvest Hosts. Our new parking lot is large so you should have no trouble securing a spot. Visit the museum before heading back out on the road! You will be so glad you did.

The museum is a great experience. The staff were fantastic and the exhibits were very interesting and very cool. We parked in a back corner of their parking lot in a level space. Was very quiet and easy to find.

Thumbs up on this site! RV parking is in museum's asphalt parking lot. Room for several RVs. Museum cost us $15 for 2 seniors. Lots of interesting things to see about space and air history. Well worth the admission.

Harvest Hosts guests have the nicest things to say!

Request to stay approved quickly. Nice level, well-marked RV spots, plenty of room. The wonderful surprise was the museum itself. My husband is a private pilot so I hoped this would interest him, and it did. We spent hours looking at, reading about, and learning more than we knew about space exploration and the path to manned-flight. I suspect my husband enjoyed watching aircraft at the neighboring small plane airport as well.

Bus Tour Groups

We are happy to host bus tours of all sizes and ages! The museum is packed with interesting information, hands-on exhibits, and a variety of experiences for groups of all ages. There are benches throughout the museum for those who like a more leisurely approach to their experience or for those who just need a break between exhibits.

Groups can choose between a self-guided tour or a guided tour. Self-guided tours will be offered a Star Guide, at admission, to act as a 'road map' through the museum. This allows the visitors to go at their own pace.

Guided tours are scheduled by phone or online and will go through the front desk to guarantee a tour guide for your visit. All of our tour guides are volunteer air and space enthusiasts who love sharing details and behind-the-scene stories about artifacts with a group of interested participants.

General Tour Groups: 10 person minimum and 2 weeks advance notice.*

Cancellation Policy: All guided museum tours are supported by staff and volunteers. We ask that groups who need to cancel a reservation, or expect to arrive later than planned, please call the museum at 580-772-5871. There is no charge for cancellation, we only ask out of courtesy to our volunteers.

* For guided tours, please allow us at least a two week advance notice in order for our tour guide to prepare a great experience for you.

** We offer free guided tours plus group rates for students and adults all year round. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee a guided tour on the weekend.

Your group is welcome to bring sack lunches and use our conference room to eat. Please reserve this space when you are booking your tour. You can bring your lunches in when you arrive and place them in the conference room while you are on tour.  

Guided Tours

We hope you'll take advantage of our guided tours at no extra charge. We would ask that you schedule two weeks in advance so that they have sufficient time to prepare. The experience will be well worth it!

School Tour Groups

With a little planning and a lot of curious minds, our tour guides will provide your group with an insightful and behind-the-scenes tour through our space and aviation artifacts. Our museum is filled with hands-on activities and items that will spark curiosity at any age. We would ask that you schedule two weeks in advance so that they have sufficient time to prepare. The experience will be well worth it!

 

If you are traveling  a long distance, we invite you to bring sack lunches and eat here at the museum, or ask about local restaurants that can accommodate a large group. We have several in town that will be happy to have you!

"Obviously General/Astronaut Stafford has enormous respect in this community, as well as substantial clout for obtaining historical pieces. This museum is obviously well funded. If you are near Weatherford, you need to stop in."
