Overview

Be amazed at one of the world's largest aircraft collections: including 3 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, 10-day Advanced Reservations Required) 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. 350 aircraft, 80 acres, 6 indoor air-cooled hangars. Just plane awesome!

Most of the planes are outdoors so dress appropriately. There are 5 hangars though so there is plenty to see indoors including tons of WWII planes. The Space Hangar was all models and photos so if you're pressed for time then skip it.

To do this museum right you need to spend at least half a day if not a whole day. If you mix in a bus tour of the Davis-Monthan AFB Boneyard (which requires early reservations), you definitely need a while day to see it all....More

Great tour of the museum and the Davis Monthan Bone Yard. Really enjoyed the walking tour of the Museum, with multiple hangers with different displays. The bus ride out to, and through, the bone yard was definitely interesting.

We didn't do the Boneyard tour. The museum with hangers and and tram tour were more than enough. Took hours! Well worth it.

There are a lot of planes outside but they also have large hangars with great planes displayed in them, so you can be out of the sun. They do allow you to bring in bottled water. You can walk outside for awhile and then go... More
