Tours & Accessibility

Tours

The Museum is a self guided attraction. However, volunteer tour guides are always available during visitor hours and can provide you with as much or as little direction and information as you need. The NAFMC volunteers are a wellspring of knowledge, both in the Museum’s history and its collection. Mainly comprised of past or current serving military members, they are happy to share their stories with visitors of all ages.
