We loved having the museum mostly to ourselves. We had time to read everything and take pictures without feeling rushed or in the way. The best thing about coming in August was that the docents spent a LOT of time sharing their knowledge of the history of the aircraft. Getting the stories behind the facts was the best part. And...

Pima is an amazing museum! It was worth the $15.50 admission price just to see the SR-71 Blackbird in person. Worlds fastest and highest flying plane! That's just the beginning. So much to see. I was there for 8 hours and my wife had to drag me away. Still only saw half of what I wanted. Don't miss the Boneyard... More

OK - now that we have your attention - this museum is a must see for anyone with a fascination for aviation - particularly WW II vintage and newer. We are in Scottsdale and have driven to the museum twice - and it is approx 2 hours away. The museum is a mix of hangars with beautifully restored aircraft. In... More

The museum was OK. However the opportunity to take a side tour to the US Air Force Boneyard at Davis-Monthan AFB was well worth the extra cost.

This is a great museum for aviation buffs. Warning, it covers acres and acres of land. get there early if it is going to be a hot day. There are a lot of air-conditioned display hangers, go to them after you have spent some time outside. the SR-71, B-29 and especially the B-17 displays, all inside are very impressive. the... More

What an amazing place to visit, covering acres and acres of ground. A special place for plane buffs with all kinds of aircraft either undercover or parked in the desert and those seen on a bus. A very well done attraction and definitely worth a visit.

Planned our road trip from the uk to include a visit here as it had good reviews and we were not disappointed. Definitely the best air museum we have ever visited around the world. Make sure you do the outside area first before it gets too hot so you dont miss any of the fantastic planes. We spent over 4... More
