While personal use photography is encouraged, it must be conducted without disruption to Museum operations or visitors and with safety in mind. Guests may not touch, sit or stand, on any aircraft, displays or exhibits or cross barriers around the museum displays at any time to take photographs.

Personal Use Photography

Personal, amateur photography is permitted in the museum and at Pioneer Airport with paid admission. This includes cell phones, handheld cameras and video cameras. Those photos may be used on personal social media pages, blogs, etc. The images may not be sold, loaned, leased or used for any commercial or promotional purpose.
