Owner description: 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!

If you are into planes this place is for you. I cannot believe how many planes they have on display. If you are in the area visiting this museum, the Titan Missile Silo is only about 1/2 hr away. It's a nice day.

This was as good as the Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH. The tram ride was very informative as the volunteers are very knowledgeable. The food in their cafeteria was very good.

I had been to Pima Air Space museum on my visit to Tucson . It is just fabulous to see all these flying engines once used by the USA military . The Air Force one was unique used in 1964. Simply fantastic for history lovers . Cheers team

We visited the air and space museum Dec.12. The day was warm, about 80F so just perfect for walking the 80 acres of buildings and outdoor static displays. They have a shuttle if you would rather not walk. Met many of the awesome volunteers who know everything about these amazing aircraft and helicopters. The volunteers are veterans and extremely friendly... More

If you are into planes or just cool stuff, please check this place out. SR 71 "Blackbird" is one of the greatest jets ever.

This is something every young American should see-- places like this museum explain why science is so important for everyone to learn. It just made me mad to know we will never take exploration of space seriously again....but go anyway! You will learn so much!

I'm big into aviation and this place delivers. So many aircrafts and history behind it. Very educational and recommended for adults and kids.
