Be amazed at one of the world's largest aircraft collections: including 2+ hangars of World War II planes, supersonic spyplanes, the world's smallest bi-plane, plus many other unique private, military and commercial air & spacecraft documenting the evolution of flight. Friendly docents augment your visit. Only Pima Air & Space offers the bus tour of the "Boneyard"/AMARG (M-F only, no holidays) plus offers its own tram tour of the museum's 80 acres of one-of-a kind planes daily (additional fees). You can actually touch "aviation history" including "Freedom One" (that flew the American 444-days-in-Iran hostages home), presidential crafts, planes that launched astronauts, delivered life-saving food/fuel, etc. and others with wingspans the length of a football field... Ogle helicopters, MiGs, an Oscar, a rare German buzz bomb, a moon rock and much more. 300 aircraft, 80 acres, 5 indoor air-cooled hangars. Just plane awesome!

As an aviation enthusiast I was fascinated by the museum. There are a number of aircraft that are unique so can't be seen anywhere else. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Fully recommended.

If you like planes go, if you don't like planes go! My wife and I went, I like planes and loved it. My wife who just went because I was going was totally gobsmacked.Go early to catch to tours before all the ex-servicemen beat you to it.Allow a day as the place is huge and it has a great gift...

This was a fun way to get up close to the planes. They have an old Air Force One you can climb in and look around.

Acres and acres of planes! This will take all day to see fully and your feet will be tired from walking, but you won’t be bored. We visited this on a warm Spring day. You have to come early to get the bus tour because it is first come and first serve basis. There are some great flying machines in... More

Even if you are not obsessed with aircraft, I think you will find this unusual museum interesting. You can do this museum on your own just meandering from plane to plane & building to building. There are docent led tours in the buildings. For an extra charge you can ride the tram which is led by very knowledgable docents. Ours... More

There is a lot a different types of planes to see, take the tram around the grounds, we had a awesome guide that was a wealth of knowledge on the planes, we didn't know much about what we were looking at, but the guide made the difference. There are five hangers chalked full of interesting planes and artifacts. You can... More

Spent quite a bit of time viewing and reading the postings for each aircraft. There is a lot to see both inside and outside and it takes a while. The one thing I did not like was the wind while trying to tour outside, but it was worth it to stick it out.
