We are excited to both invite schools to continue to engage in virtual programs and to welcome students and teachers back to the National Air and Space Museum. Due to limited capacity, all on-site field trips at the Museum in Washington, DC will be self-guided for the 2021/22 school year.
If you can’t make it to either of the Museum’s locations you can engage with us virtually. We offer several online reservable programs and the Museum’s Anytime Expeditions provide on-demand educational resources that can be used in your classroom.
