On way to Grand Canyon and decided to stop at Planes of Fame Air Museum, had several planes used in movies, showed a wide variety. They rebuild planes here and send several to sister museum in Calif. Loved seeing the planes being rebuilt also. Lots of history here.

There is a great picture opportunity with a giant bronze bald eagle at the entrance and some vintage jet fighters and planes. It is not a real extensive collection but nice to walk around for a few minutes and snap some selfies.

This air museum is not very large, but it features several rare target drones. It also has a large exhibit dedicated to WWII pilots, adding human stories to engineering history. Located within 30 minutes drive from Grand Canyon, it is a great place to visit during the hottest hours of the day, before heading back to Grand Canyon to watch... More

I was quite surprised to see this museum on the road to the Grand Canyon, but it is very much worth a stop. Admission is only $6.95 and anyone interested in aviation - especially WWI and WW2 - will enjoy this and can spend hours here. I have been to some of the biggest aviation museums in the country, but... More

My wife has never shown much of a leaning towards aircraft except those that fly us on holiday so I was delighted to see how interested she was in the time we spent in the museum hanger. It is not a big display but what they have is maintained in pristine condition, the displays and well laid out and the... More

My wife and I swung into the Planes of Fame at Valle Airport and had a great time! They have a nice display of historical aircraft and a great little “Boneyard” display. It was fun to crawl around their KC-97 parts as I’m a huge Stratocruiser 377 fan and this is about as close as it gets! They also have... More

This is a small collection of war bird planes and memorabilia. It was very interesting and well worth the small entrance fee.
