Tours are geared toward families and members of the general public who are interested in learning more about the history, missions and assets of Minot Air Force Base. Tours are available during our tour season, March-October. Due to manning shortfalls, inspections and mission requirements, these tours may be cancelled or rescheduled with little or no notice. Tour requests will have to be handled on a case by case basis. We apologize for any requests that cannot be met due to the current situation.
