GROUP PRICING & RESERVATIONS
$12.50 per person
School and Youth Group Tours of the Titan Missile Museum are offered free of charge on a space-available basis to public, private, and charter schools, as well as to youth organizations like the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Civil Air Patrol, and Boys and Girls Clubs. Reservations are required. Plan your tours as far in advance as possible as the availability of these tours is limited and they fill up fast. These tours are not available in the month of March.
This program is available for grades 5-12 (the content is not suitable for younger audiences). The School/Youth Group Tour program consists of a one-hour guided tour of the missile site and a 30-minute classroom session (when Education Docents are available). In the classroom, students learn some of the principles of rocket flight by observing demonstrations involving chemical and hypergolic reactions and utilizing the museum’s “whoosh tube” and “rocket sled.”
The entire program generally lasts about 90 minutes. The tours can only accommodate 25 students and chaperones at a time. Groups that are larger than 25 may be divided over two days, depending on their size. The museum cannot accommodate groups larger than 50.
The museum requires one adult chaperone for every 10 students, and these adults, along with the drivers, will be admitted to the museum free of charge. Any other adults accompanying the group must pay the regular admission fee. Reservations for these tours must be made at least 30 days in advance. But don’t wait. Availability is limited and these tours fill up fast!
Backpacks, cinch sacks, large purses and camera bags are prohibited on the tour. Teachers/Administrators making the reservation are responsible for ensuring that each student, teacher and chaperone understands that backpacks, cinch sacks, large purses and camera bags are prohibited on the tour and ensuring that the group arrives at the museum at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour. Teachers and chaperones are responsible for monitoring and controlling the behavior of their students at all times.
The School/Youth Group Tour Program strives to provide an innovative, thought-provoking, and challenging student experience that complements the Arizona history and science curricula, promotes critical thinking, and stimulates language and reading skills.
