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!

I was visiting family in AZ last month and we visited here because my uncle thought I would enjoy it, being an Air Force veteran. After we toured the boneyard, we stopped off at the cafeteria for lunch. I'm a disabled veteran & had my dog w/me. I made it through the lunch line, paid for my food and made... More

There was so much to see at this museum. There were optional tours going on throughout the day that you could walk up to and listen to for as long as you would like. It took about 3 hours to see the whole place. You cannot actually go into the planes- there are just a few for picture ops. The... More

We took my grandson here over the Memorial Day weekend. The Musuem is open from 9 to 5 except for Christmas and Thanksgiving. We didn't allow enough time for everything, I would give yourself at least 3 or 4 hours ( probably 2 visits are necessary)and this didn't include the tram ride which we didn't have time to do. Make... More

My husband really wanted to visit this museum. We went on both the bus tour and the tram tour and both were enjoyable. The docent was very knowledgeable The various hangars at the Museum were also very interesting with many docents available with stories and facts aplenty.

We took our visiting son to see this museum, and though he is not really a "plane person" he was so excited to see all of the different kinds of airplanes. Their space museum is really nice too, with lots of "hands on" things for the kids to do. The outside area, where most of the larger planes are, is... More

Excellant museum for airplane buffs. The tram ride through the the property is not to be missed. Former pilots relate the history of each of the palnes and copters. Extremelly knowledgeable and entertaining. Hangers house great relics of planes from years gone by.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base "boneyard" is one of the tours (you'll need picture ID) offered by the museum. For a small fee you get on an a/c bus and tour the on base boneyard. A guide on the bus explains in detail what the boneyard is all about and the airplanes stored there. B52's, B36, B47, etc...fighters--prop and jet planes... More

If you like air planes, this museum is bliss. Diner has good food at reasonable prices. Take advantage of the tours, they do a great job telling you about the exhibits.
