The museum is now fully open and accessible for our guests!   The P-3C Orion interior tours are back and available during normal operating hours.    We never charge admission! 


Take a 3D interactive tour of the P-3C Orion! 

We're looking for volunteers to join the team at our Museum!  Please select the "Volunteer" tab above to learn more!!!  

The interior of the P-3C Orion gets really hot during the summer!  If you're coming specifically to take a tour of this aircraft, please arrange to be at the museum when we open up at 10am.  For everyone's safety, if it's too hot inside, tours will be suspended.   We have air conditioning planned for the future!  Thank you!
