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

Nice quick stop on the way to the canyon. The kids loved the planes. Lot of cool experimental planes in there and a good bit of reading. Lots to learn in there.

This is an interesting place that is sure to give you some fun learning about aviation history. They have a good selection of planes and a lot of knowledge. It is a short drive north of Williams. Be prepared to spend a few hours looking at all the planes.

My FIL really loves planes, he used to fly and is quite the expert on airplane history and mechanics. He never skips an air museum when he sees one and he was really impressed with this Planes of Fame - so that's saying something! It was mostly wheelchair accessible so that was a plus for us. The staff was also... More

It was one of those moments when you have a goal in mind and you get sidetracked! I saw the museum and thought, what the heck...let's give this a try. It was so much fun! Lots of history and great planes. I highly recommend this place. :-)

My family, including adults and children, spent a very fun day at the Planes of Fame museum. There are lots of different planes and some educational history displays. There are also antique cars. Don't miss the gift shop, they have some great flight-related souvenirs. We were there for an air show that included WWII battle re-enactments and vintage planes flying... More

We made a quick stop here on our way up to the Grand Canyon. Our teenage son is into this kind of stuff so he enjoyed it and knew about many of the planes we saw. It was good to stop in and see it, and neat that some of the planes are operational.

If you are an aviation buff you must see this museum! It has an amazing array of rare aircraft. They have one of the few Thunderbolt that exist in flying condition! The bone yard is worth a look too!
