(Current as of December 2019)
Official base tours are offered to local civic, school and youth groups to educate about the U.S. Air Force and Barksdale Air Force Base missions. Tours are available to groups of 10 to 44 people (or the passenger capacity of one commercial bus if rented by a group). Tours are only available on Fridays and are scheduled based on a first-requested, first-served basis.
Tours are free of charge. Tours can be subject to last-minute cancellations due to mission requirements and resource availability. Final confirmations will be provided two weeks prior to the tour date.
Barksdale does not offer multiple-day tours and all tours last approximately four hours. No tours will be given on weekends or federal holidays or beyond normal duty hours. Tours are generally not available to retiree groups as these groups can already access the base and to allow for educating groups unfamiliar with our mission. Exceptions to these guidelines will only occur in very rare cases.
Public Affairs provides support in photo, video, social media, studio and more. It's now easier than ever to book an appointment or make a request. Refer to the support services links below to make an online request or studio appointment.
