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) 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!

A really amazing museum with over 300 aircraft ranging from world war 2 to the space age. Its an easy place to navigate with plenty of knowledgeable volunteers. I also recommend stopping for lunch at museum's Café/Ice cream shop.

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

Answers are good. If you have limited time, I would suggest skipping the boneyard tour. The tram tour of the outdoor museum exhibits is outstanding.
