Overview

Monday - Friday: 10:00am-4:00pm Closed all US Federal Holidays We are located on the East side of Great Falls, Montana at the east end of 2nd Ave North just inside the Malmstrom AFB main gate to the right. Because the Museum and Air Park are within the Malmstrom AFB perimeter, public access or non-US DoD cardholders will need to process through the Visitor Control Center located outside and just right of the 2nd Avenue Gate (6220 Goddard Dr.). A valid US or Canadian Driver's License or ID card is required for public access. Children 16 and over will require a valid photo ID (e.g., Driver's License, State or Gov't ID, School ID). Accompanied children less than 16 years of age, do not require an ID card for access. Non-US/Canadian Driver's License/ID Card holders may coordinate in advance as Passport or Visa clearances can take up to 72 business-hours to process for entry authorization. Group Visits and Special Arrangements may be coordinated by contacting the museum. Exterior Displays: F-101B/F, Voodoo; B-25J, Mitchell Bomber; EB-57 B/E, Canberra; F-84F, Thunderstreak; UH-IF, Huey (Iroquois); T-33, Shooting Star; KC-97G, Stratotanker; LGM-30G Minuteman III, ICBM; and more.

Interesting place to see if you are in the area. There is a museum and some air craft on the base but you need a pass and sponsor to get on the base.
