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!

Love this place!

Great place to see multiple planes all in one place. The tours that can be taken are phenomenal. The knowledge that can be gained from this business is amazing.

This is the third largest air museum in the US after the Smithsonian and Air Force with some really great aircraft, some of it on loan from the Smithsonian. There are several guides in each hangar to aid visitors. There is a guided bus tour through the "bone yard" which is interesting. Nice place to spend a morning or afternoon.

It was great to see all the wonderful planes from the different wars. Looking at all the space junk was great also.

The 3rd largest airplane collection in the US. The exhibit now is "Women in Flight" which is very interesting. I recommend taking the 1 hour tram tour, which takes you on a tour of the grounds of the air museum. The tour guides are knowledgeable. The "Boneyard" tours are not offered on weekends due to not enough military security.

Wow is all I can say. There are so many aircraft here its almost exhausting to see them all. You could easily spend 2 days here. We did the tram tour as well as the boneyard tour. The tram tour is about 1 hour long and you will learn about the different aircraft they have outside. You can walk around... More

Fantastic facilities, excellent staff & awe inspiring volunteers and an incredible collection of some amazing military aircraft! We absolutely loved our day trip to the Air & Space Museum and would highly recommend it! In particular, the fully restored planes in the hangers are just incredible. And the variety, quality and uniqueness of the planes outside are definitely something to... More

If you like airplanes, this is the place to visit. Offer 300 aircraft to see. There are a great group of volunteers to give you lots of history. This is a must see

Fantastic! Simply a must-do even if you didn't think you were crazy about airplanes. One of the finest collections and displays I have ever seen, and I'm a pilot. Nowhere else can you get so up-close to the aircraft. Your kids will absolutely love walking through the acres of airplanes outside. The tour of the AMRG and Airplane Boneyard was... More

Wow, is all I can say about this place. The hangers had so many different planes in each of them. This was a really cool experience. We did the boneyard charter ride into the air force base. That was so overwhelming with how many planes they have out there....over 4,000. I knew nothing about planes and the tour guide along... More

We love this museum. It is huge so we haven't ever been able to view all of it in one session. We have been a couple times. I would absolutely consider a membership, but it is far from our house. There's definitely enough to see for multiple visits. Our favorite time to go is for the Night Wings exhibit (they... More
