My husband was in the Marine Corps, after high school. He loves seeing planes, of any type. The gift shop is small but we found some great souvenirs. He, now, works for an airline and, in addition to the planes, there was vintage memorabilia of airlines and other aspect related to the subject, of planes. He was able to donate... More

This place is a hidden gem. It contains a large assortment of planes and brochures for attractions in the area. Tiny gift shop, but interesting employees.

On the way back from Grand Canyon, my family stopped at the Air museum just to take a look. The old hangar is full of vintage and classic planes, even a small armoured scout car. My dad loved the place. I' glad that we visited this place

On the way back from the Grand Canyon to Sedona, I saw on the map the "Planes of Fame Air Museum" and my wife agreed to indulge my love of aviation. It is a fairly small museum, with one hangar of aircraft and a few outside as well. What makes this spot cool is that most of the planes are... More

Made a special trip to see the museum, flying up from Mesa, AZ, to land at the adjacent airfield that is right next to the museum. Although small and in a fairly remote location, this museum, which is located in an unheated hanger (so wear warm clothes in the winter), had several interesting aircraft that I had not seen before,...

We came across this little gem on our trip from the Grand Canyon to the Pima Air & Space Museum. After touring the aircraft hangar, we moved across to the adjacent building that held a small collection of antique automobiles. We were also fortunate to see the Constellation - one of my favorite planes - before it was to be... More

This museum is an overflow facility of the main Planes Of Fame museum however it is worth a look in itself. Well spaced out hangar exhibits which tend to rotate as they are flyable, and get occasionally swapped with the main facility. When we were there a Lockheed Constellation was in residence. Has an interesting restoration / mini boneyard area... More

We stopped here on the way back from the grand canyon. The collection, while not as large as their Chino museum, has a number of interesting planes. They have many exhibits of people and events. In many respects, the smaller collection made the visit more fun since you could see everything. At Chino there is so much you are overwhelmed.
