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!

Due too the heat, we only visited the indoor museum and took a bouneyard bus tour (1h) with our two kids. This was very interesting for everybody !

... it was a hot day when we visited. Hangers are not air-conditioned and the walk around the place included walking outside between the hangers. Go early if during season. It houses some very historical aircraft of our aviation past & present.

If you like planes then this is the place for you. Knowledgeable tour guides and there's a tram that will take you round the field for 6$ if you want to avoid the heat
