Can I tour the base?Guided tours are offered (mission and security conditions allowing) for groups of people when scheduled in advance. The Guided Tour can be tailored to the group's desires. Average tours consist of a windshield or driving tour of the installation with stops at various significant locations pertaining to Malmstrom's Mission. We recommend participating children be in first grade or older. Malmstrom Air Force Base is an exciting part of your community and an excellent resource and educational tool for groups interested in the United States Air Force.
School tours are offered to groups of children in the first grade and older, when accompanied by a sufficient number of adult chaperones. The school can provide it's own transportation or a bus can be arranged for travel on base, when available. Tours for students can be tailored depending on their age, interest and time available.
We try to accommodate any tour group size, however, there are sometimes limitations to the amount of people in one group we can support, please contact the Malmstrom Public Affairs Office for specific questions if you have a large group. A typical large group would consist of 40 people or more. We welcome Junior ROTC students and other youth groups serving high-school-age students. Civic and business organizations or senior citizen groups are also welcome. We have some interesting sites for elementary or middle-school-age groups as well. We also welcome anyone to the Malmstrom Air Force Base Museum without an appointment. A photo ID is required for access to the museum.
Tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The tour schedule fills up quickly, so contact Malmstrom Public Affairs early.
