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

This museum was a real treat as was the next door building with the antique cars. Its small and rather a long way from Williams where we were staying. There is a nice looking hotel across the road in the town of Valle.

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...
