Answers to these fascinating questions, and even more facts, can be discovered at the Thunderbird Archives. Located in the hangar building next to Mail Services, we are now open on Fridays from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM. Stop by, bring friends and family, visit the exhibits, view the displays and experience the School’s rich history.
