My husband and I have been to many Air Museums. This is one of our favorite! It's nicely done both indoor and outdoor. You can also visit the restoration area where the mechanics work on the project. The museum volunteers are OUTSTANDING!

This cannot be described. You have to see it to believe it. Take a Vet with you, and 'Thank' them for their service. Lot's of true, real history. Some of it 'living' and walking among you. Salute.

Our AWA retirees organization always holds their annual meeting here. It's fabulous for meetings especially since you can come early, tour the museum and the property. It's an amazing museum.

By far the most outstanding part of this museum is the opportunity to get inside a B-17 or B-25 and experience what it was like to fly in these incredible machines. My dad flew in a B-17 during WWII as a waist gunner and flight engineer. Being inside a similar aircraft was great. Staff is also great.

This is a very informative display of the training of WWII pilots right at Falcon Field. Lots of Pictures showing the history as well as nice display of planes. Allow 2-4 hours depending on how much you like to read displays.

We went on a day there was also a military vehicle display, which was very interesting, although we were disappointed most of the vehicles left early. The museum itself is very interesting with lots of WWII memoralbilia. Planes, helicopters, even a missile. Wish they had more in the way of refreshments.

We had a ride on the B-17 last weekend and what a great experience. The crew and pilots were friendly and very knowledgeable. To be able to fly on such an aircraft and try to imagine what those young men were going through during WW2 was such a great opportunity. We flew over the Superstition Mountains and the view from...

My husband loves military aircraft and can spit out the names of the different planes faster than the names of our children. So this had to be a stop on our Az. vacation. I love the "art" on the WW2 aircraft and the CAF was well presented. Besides the different planes, there are models and displays of artifacts that are... More

Excellent collection of WW2 era and newer planes, helicopters and memorabilia. The military personnel working there are all friendly and knowledgeable. For a price you can even get a short ride on a variety of planes! Well worth the time.
