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!

The history of the US Air Force all in one place. Exhibits indoors and outdoors. Be prepared to walk a lot, pace yourself for at least a 3-hour tour. Wear sun protection, and bring a light jacket during cooler times of the year.

Finding the Pima Air and Space Museum is easy. It's just off highway 10 and there are plenty of signs. Admission costs vary but being a senior I paid $12.75 while the regular admission is $15.50. There are, if I remember correctly 2 tram tours you can take. One ($6.00) takes you around the outside exhibits while the second ($7.00)... More

This is a great place to visit. Make sure you get there in time for a trip to the "boneyard" where there are many planes displayed for salvage or may still fly one day. Our tour guide was an ex Air Force pilot and was very knowledgeable about the planes and the area. I believe the last bus leaves at... More

We went there with a home-school group and were given a tour which was awesome... The place is huge so be sure to set aside time... There are so many planes and so many stories that you could easily spend an entire day there and possibly not see everything... By all means speak with the volunteers that are serving there... More

We've been to air museum's before and this one was above average and definitely worth the visit. The layout was nice because it was spread out and it made viewing each exhibit and aircraft easier. They had a lot of interactive exhibits and videos and examples of uniforms and equipment used and worn during the time the planes and helicopters... More

Got there early to book a place on the boneyard tour. Museums are not really my think but I thoroughly enjoyed looking round. The place is full of different types of aircraft many I've not seen before only in pictures or films. If going this time of year do outside first thing as it's still very hot.

Now, I have to confess, I am a sucker for a nice piece of military hardware, so I am definitely biased. I loved this place, and will come back once or twice on our next trip down. My 4 year-old can't wait to go back. A great collection of American aviation history with a nice sprinkling of Soviet and NATO... More

The boneyard tour is a must see, but you have to get there early to sign up. By 9.30 half the places were already gone. We spent a day looking at the planes, you're allowed to go right up to and under them. It's outside so it was very hot. There were lots of veterans who were only to happy... More

This is a fun place to go and check out the planes. A lot of it is outside, so go early in the morning because by noon your so hot and tired your ready to go! Kids 5 and older enjoy it. They can climb on some of the planes, touch the tires and just run around. The ground outside... More
