Folks who don't have a pre-existing interest in historic planes might not consider an hour here well spent, but pilots, veterans, or even mere civilians like me who devoted time in their youth to building scale models of warplanes will find this small collection fascinating. In my book, pride of place goes to the Messerschmitt BF-109 WWII fighter in the... More

We stopped in at this little air museum that turned out to be quite interesting. I've seen some of the spanish built Me109's, but here they have the genuine article. Not a big museum but with AAA we paid $9 for three of us to tour around inside and see some cool machinery. Bonus out back is the well worn... More

A must stop to see historic working and not so much planes. Very interesting and educational. Staff there are friendly and so so enthusiastic. A real learning curve and an eye opener if you imagine your self in the cockpit!! Well worth the time. It's all on ground level, inside and outside.

A really nice museum if you are a aircraft buff. Great displays and refurbished aircraft make it well worth the trip. The airport terminal next to the museum is also worth visiting.

We all enjoyed this, but especially my 8 year old son. He is an airplane buff. A good family activity.

A great small museum 1/2 hr from the Grand Canyon or Williams. Get up close and personal with lots of air plane equipment.

I really found this aircraft museum very interesting and worthwhile. The exhibit is very low key and low in price. Many aircraft, ranging from WWI era through WWII.

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

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
