This offshoot of the main Planes of Fame at Chino is smaller, not as slick but nevertheless well worth a visit. There's plenty to see, a walk around the outside peeping into the yards is as good as touring the main exhibits. It's position between Williams and the Grand Canyon means it is easy to access, don't miss it if... More

This place looked OK from the road some cool old planes outside and we were tired of driving so we stopped. Holy cow! The hanger looked average sized and we were not expecting much inside but wow the collection and artifacts inside blew us away!!! This is a must stop for anyone who likes airplanes, mechanical things, boss women in... More

We stopped by this place on our way back to Williams from the GC. I was disappointed that you can't actually go IN any of the airplanes parked outside, but apparently thats because people had been stealing parts as "souvenirs". A disappointment as I'd have loved to see the inside of the Connie. But as I'm an airplane geek, I... More

This museum was a real treat as was the next door building with the antique cars. Its small and rather a long way from Williams where we were staying. There is a nice looking hotel across the road in the town of Valle.

We saw this Museum on our way to the Grand Canyon and decided to stop on our way back to our hotel. We are glad we did. Very hospitable people. Any one into classic airplanes and history would love this. The Lockheed "Connie", the Mig, the F-86...great. Worth the stop.

If you're into classic airplanes this is a must stop for you. Planes of Fame Air Museum at Williams Arizona is about 24 miles south of the Grand Canyon. The collection consists of rare and interesting airliners like the Lockheed Constellation, Martin 404 and Convair 240 on the outside. Inside there is a great selection of other planes displayed in...

Went for the annual Fly-In and Car Show. It was our first time and have been to many Fly-ins throughout the US. This was a wonderful event and the museum has been well thought out. I am sure we will return for another visit.

We loved the restored planes, the exhibits of artifacts and memorabilia, and the couple who run the museum. Don't forget to stop in and see the little auto museum at the airport building next door. We didn't get a chance to do the tour of the Constellation (an additional $3,) but plan to go back again.

On our way to the Canyon we drove past this place and had to stop. The planes were awesome but Shirley behind the counter made my day. She was not only knowledgeable about the planes...she was so friendly. She gave us great advice about visiting the GC and truly made our day. Please go visit her and support this local... More
