Went to this Museum this morning and was very impressed with the planes and the knowledge of the people who volunteered there except for on individual who made the whole experience less than pleasant. We had toured the planes which were awesome and the history of the flyers. You could take a flight on some of the older fighter planes... More

As an aviation buff and historian, I can say that this is an excellent example of a living museum. Many of the aircraft on display are maintained in flying condition, and rides are offered in some of these. The consequence is that the museum's exhibits are constantly changing, making this a museum to visit on more than one occasion over... More

Me and a buddy took a trip over to the air museum to see what it was all about. The place is awesome with beautiful displays of planes and related material. In the shop the volunteers were actually overhauling a huge plane, motors were off and they were replacing sheet metal. Flights can actually be booked in these vintage airplanes... More

These guys have a fantastic collection of private and military aircraft and engines that are a must see if you have any interest in aviation. They also have a restoration hangar where you can see their painstaking work rebuilding vintage and WW2 aircraft.

Brought our grandaughter to the museum when she was visiting us. We were very impressed with our gentleman who gave us the tour. Toured inside of WW2 aircraft a history lesson not to be missed.

This Flight Museum is worth every penny of admission fee. Plan on staying at least three hours, there is so much to see. This is a not to miss Arizona Museum.

If you like WWII planes, this is the place to visit. And a great attraction, you can ride in a vintage B-17, and from personal experience, this is something to do, at least once in this lifetime.

Went to museum because grandson is into planes. This place has so much to offer we were there for more than 2 1/2 hours. Gentlemen giving tours were extremely informative and so friendly. Was raining when we got there and the B-17 was not open to tour but by the end of our visit they opened it up and we... More

This museum is immaculately maintained. All the airplanes on display have been cleaned up and are maintained regularly. Each plane has a little of it's history and what it was used for posted in front of each one. There are several veteran docents available to share information and answer questions. If you are interested in some WWII history, this is... More
