WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU VISIT

Our program changes slightly from year to year and we see approximately 25,000 students from all over California each school year. The Air Force One Discovery Center is a curriculum-based program with pre-visit requirements. It is FREE of charge to all students and teachers (carefully read the Chaperone Policy prior to arriving at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum).

The coordinating teacher determines their school’s arrival and departure times to the library- make sure to account for travel time and traffic! Unfortunately, late arrivals cannot make up the activities they miss due to tardiness.

The ideal amount of time for a field trip is 4 hours as the day includes:

  • Discovery Center classroom activity (30 miutes) and simulation (1 hour)
  • Lunch (30 minutes)
  • A docent-led tour of the museum, memorial site, Berlin Wall, and Air Force One (time varies)

The field trip timeline is provided to assist in the planning of your field trip.

Note: If teachers/chaperones will be driving separately, notify our staff ahead of time as the entrance to the Air Force One Discovery Center is not the same as the main entrance to the museum.
