School and Group Visits
The Bomber Command Museum welcomes visits by students. Educators can use the museum as an extension of the classroom to enhance their teaching of history and the science of flight.
Please keep in mind that our museum is a volunteer operated, non-government facility that relies on admission charges, donations, and gift shop sales for our operations.
Often, schools combine tours of our museum with visits to Fort Macleod, the Bar U National Historic Site, the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Interpretive Centre, the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, or to the Museum of Miniatures in Nanton.
Visits may focus on the theory of flight, World War II history, or a general introduction to aviation.
Teacher developed resources that may be used in the classroom prior to your visit, during your museum visit, or in the classroom following your visit may be downloaded below.
Guided tours are adapted to the objectives of the teacher and the age of the students.
Our "Joe English Room" is ideal for discussing the museum and the history as well as for viewing dvd's and presentations.
School group visits are by reservation only (two weeks advance notice is required with confirmation 48 hours prior to arrival).
Reservations may be made by telephone (403-646-2270) or by inserting the required information into the downloadable form below and returning it to the museum (by fax or mail).
