Loved this place! Planes, jets, helicopters. Lots of information. Walk through at your own pace. A lot of history. Take water with you on a hot day. A lot of ground to cover. Restaurant on sight, great food.

We spent 2hours viewing the planes in the different buildings. The docents there are terrific and love to help and inform. Added bonus the gift shop is not overpriced!

I'm no more of an aviation buff than most, but truly impressive. Great place to bring out of town guests. Plan to spend at least 2 hours. It is very large and has an incredible array of aviation exhibits

Very much enjoyed visiting PIMA, staff were friendly and enjoyed sharing their knowledge which was both informative and interesting. Exhibits are great and access between them simple. Took the Boneyard tour which needs to be booked in advance and would definitely recommend it.

The museum is very nice, cool air but the cafeteria is very high priced. Be prepared by eating prior to the visit! No food allowed in the site. The trolley ride thru the property was pleasant.

Fabulous place! If you love seeing and knowing about airplanes and their past life, this is for you. Even little kids were amazed by the planes and all there is to see.

For aviation afficionados, the Pima Air and Space Museum is a must. But it is for everyone to enjoy deeply. The collection is history. It is a fascinating look at technological change, at the evolution of military and civilian flight.

You can't walk around the Boneyard, but you can walk the Museum lot. I'm pretty sure the Guppy is at the Museum, not the Boneyard.
