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

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.

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. :-)
