Overnights at the New England Air Museum

Scout Overnights are scheduled several times throughout the year. Activities include open cockpits, hands-on Build & Fly challenges, Aviation Alive demonstrations, as well as a snack in the evening and light breakfast. Participating scouts also receive a patch to commemorate their experience. Overnight check-in begins at 5:30pm with formal programming beginning at 7:00pm. Overnights conclude at 9:00am the following morning. We recommend groups eat dinner before they arrive at the museum; however, a designated eating area will be available for groups who wish to picnic or coordinate pizza delivery during check-in. Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $55 per person with a $25 per person deposit required to reserve a spot. This is a very popular event so it's best to reserve early!
