Museum Flagship Tour

Begin your immersive journey into World War II on the exclusive Early Access Tour! Join us for a preopening tour accompanied by an expert guide, who will provide an overview of each major pavilion you’ll tour later at your own pace. From the awesome macro-artifacts and warbirds on view in the STEM Innovation Gallery and US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, the Early Access Tour will give you a great jump-start on your day at the Museum—as well as insight into how we tell the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world

This exclusive experience, offered at 8:00 a.m. Thursday through Monday, includes a Museum Campus Pass and a ticket to view the 4D experience Beyond All Boundaries, narrated by Tom Hanks.
