Fantastic, huge collection of airplanes including WWII B24, B25, B17, B27, P51, F4UF and more modern planes like F14, F15, and P3 Orion. Doscents are great.

If you're in the Tucson area, you cannot go wrong with this museum. There are a couple of Blue Angel planes, Kitty Hawk, and a few past president planes. Bring walking shoes or you can do the guided tour. We didn't do the guided tour but next time, we will definitely do that. So much to see! They also have... More

We were down to see our son and his family as they are stationed in Tucson. We decided to stop and see what was here and was very impressed with all the planes, exhibits and plan on bringing our grandson on our next trip.

We visited Pima Air and Space in April with our 11 year old grandson. He loves all types of aircraft. He wasn't disappointed! The museum is very extensive and you need hours to take it all in. Unfortunately, once we went outside, the heat did us in. We walked around most of the planes, getting under them often to seek... More

If you like aircraft museums you will love this. Over 300 aircraft well laid out. I would go back for sure. It was awesome. Highly recommended.

If you have any interest in aviation at all, you will love this place. The aircraft are right out in the open available for you to touch and walk around and inspect and not stashed behind ropes. There's an amazing array of aircraft including stuff I've never heard of as well as prototypes that only 1 or 2 exist. A... More

If you are into vintage and modern aircraft then this is the place where you can see all of them in one day. You will be guided by docents, some of whom were actually crew members on the aircraft in their hay day. You will also get a tour of a former Air Force One aircraft to see how the... More

The museum is super, but this time around we took the Boneyard Tour. Admission is $7 a head. Recommend you make reservations cause the tours fill-up. The tour lasts over an hour, but you do ride around in an air conditioned bus for the full tour. Make sure you use the restroom before leaving on the tour because there are... More

I have been wanting to come here for almost two decades and I am glad I finally did. It's a little bit rough and ready, but that simply adds to the atmosphere. Pace yourself as you walk around outside, it is very hot, the indoor areas are a welcome respite. The cafe is great - good food and cold drinks.... More
