Selfridge Air Museum Access

The Selfridge Military Air Museum is located on a secure military installation.

For security reasons, all individuals without a U.S. Government ID card, Common Access Card (CAC), or Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) card are required to have a mandatory security background check performed for a Visitor’s Pass before they will be allowed access to the Base and the Museum.

Mandatory requirements:

  • Current and valid U.S. driver’s license
  • Current vehicle registration
  • Proof of vehicular insurance

Visitors will be denied access if on a government watchlist, convicted warrant,  warrant, or felon.

The base security will perform the background check at the main gate entrance to the base.

Approval for entry to Selfridge ANG Base to visit the Selfridge Military Air Museum requires visitors to proceed via a designated route directly to the museum.  This entry approval does not allow said visitor(s) to access other Base areas.

You will be notified when the background check is completed and provided information on ‘how’ to access the base.

Foreign Nationals

Citizens of another country (both adults and children) require approximately 30 days’ advance notice to the Museum’s Executive Director for coordination.
