Very nice informative museum. Many planes to view. You can pay and fly in an old War Bird for a short ride. Lots of action at this airport. Definitely worth a stop. My husband and I really enjoyed our time there. Easily 1 - 2 hours to take it all in.

I enjoy ww2 aviation, so I was in hog heaven at this place. There is a lot to read, but I was more interested in the static displays. They let you walk through the middle of the B-17 as well. Just don't do it if you have a bad back!!

My husband and I visited the the Commemorative Air Force museum on our visit to AZ. It was a lot of fun listening to our tour guide and seeing the different air craft. I wish we would have had our children with us. Our kids would have loved it! (They are 8, 11 & 12).

Great range and quality of exhibits, good knowledgable attendants. Explore inside a working B17 bomber - no bombs!

It is a wonderful museum with awesome planes and great history. Take the time to read up on the role that women played during the wars. Time well spent.

The volunteer guides were so knowledgeable and when I left I had even more respect for those who served in the war, crawling through the B17 was unreal-and so much to look at in the museum itself.

I took my 86 year old father to the air museum on a Saturday. The parking lot was full and they were encouraging us to park across the street at the Wal Mart and then walk across, something that was not in the cards for my elderly Dad. All of the handicap spots were taken too. They did have a... More

Excellent way to spend a couple of hours. The people working there are dedicated and knowledgeable. They were working on a B 17 and getting it ready for a flight next week..

Since that time, the CAF has grown into a large international organization with dozens of aircraft ranging from huge bombers to small spotter aircraft.
