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!

Great aviation museum

There was actually too much for us to completely view during our 2 to 3 hour visit. The devoted volunteers serving as tour guides are very knowledgeable.

We are an average family who came to Tucson for a visit. We decided that we should go to the Pima Air & Space Museum because we have seen and heard so many wonderful reviews about it. It was even recommended by people who actually know us. While there are tons of airplanes, missiles, and military memorabilia there - we... More

Got there Tuesday after 12:00. This made it impossible to take the tram tour and the AMARG tour. So if you want to do both - get there before 11 for sure 10 for certain. So hot in July - would be nicer if it wasn't 108 degrees - but whose fault is that? Recommend Sunscreen for the fair skinned.... More

I have voluneered at the Pima Air and Space Museum in support of Women and Military Aviation day. I love this museum and all the planes, history and facets of knowledge that come with it! There are many different planes to explore. For activities, there are sponsored days with sponsored activities for children such as the annual Night Wings event.... More

Visiting family in Tucson we were just a short hop to one of my bucket list items. The U.S. Air Force bone yard at Davis-Monthan Air Force base. This is one of two tours available at the museum. The boneyard tour is in an air conditioned bus and is shy of two hours. I mistakenly thought it was just a... More

The biggest part of the museum is outside so plan your trip when it's not too hot here. We took the tram which was very informational. Really enjoyed seeing all the different aircraft. Would recommend for entire family .

Great pld planes of all eras from world war 2 to current including a couple old air force one's. Planes are out side as well as in several hangars. I'd give it minimum 4-5 hours. There is an optional tour that takes you to the old plane graveyard on the air force base down the street which has hundreds of... More

If you love planes, this is a must see. If you don't like planes, you can spend a couple of hours. Great variety of airplanes on display. The best part was the volunteers who bring history to life. Most of the displays are out of doors, and it is very hot in the summer, so plan accordingly.

I used to work in aviation for the US Govt, so this was an amazing, fascinating place for me. I learned so much from the signs by each plane and from both tours that we took. My wife enjoyed the tours and learning why each plane was important - but was much less into the technical innovations the planes represented.... More
