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!

This museum is more than worth the entrance fee (which is only about 6$!). It is a hangar full of great planes like ME 109, experimental planes, various drones and a lot more. Usually there are not many visitors at a time, so you can go around and look at all planes as you like.There is also one cockpit you... More

Quite unexpected to find a collection of this quality and size in Valle. Have been to the town several times but never visited the air museum . Quite a selection and all of the extra engines, etc. are neat to see. These planes can actually fly. In the air terminal such as it is, there is a neat selection of... More

We stopped in because my husband is a military plane buff, but this place had something for everyone! The lady that worked the desk and the manager (I hate that I can't remember their names) were very friendly and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our visit with them as much as we did the great old planes on display. The admission... More

Stopped in on a whim, saw it on the way to the Grand Canyon...it was worth the extra time! Lots of interesting historic airplanes are on display and the exhibits were really well done. They have General MacArthur's plane on display. Don't drive by - stop in and see it.

When driving by be sure to stop at this lovely place. The people are so friendly and know a lot about the planes. Also include the constellation tour to your visit! More than worth a visit!

Driving up from Williams to the Grand Canyon and saw this place. We called in and were met by a lady who was so friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The exhibits were fascinating. We had a lovely visit and would go back happily.

Just visited this wonderful museum yesterday (July 1st). The staff was very friendly and helpful, the place was very interesting and FULL of planes, displays, info, and memorabilia. There were some very historical planes on display of which only a handful exist. The best part of this museum: most of the planes ACTUALLY FLY! Anyone can paint a shell of... More
