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!

Being located next to the Boneyard at Davis-Monthan AFB comes with a few perks. The collection here spans the WWII to present. Highlights include a B-25 Liberator and an SR-71 Blackbird. Well worth an afternoon.

My hubby and I are both history/old airplane buffs. So many great planes and jets to be seen here, and some great historical displays. Best part was 90 year old docent and WWII survivor who shared his stories!

When you go to Tucson be sure to visit the Tucson Aircraft Museum! It's has unique aircraft that you won't see very often. My main attraction was the B52's they have! Unfortunately I only had time to visit the museum and didn't have the chance...More

This is one of the biggest collections of historical aircraft found most anywhere. Some of the most unusual wings of war assembled in one place for anyone to wonder through. A must see adventure for people that like flying things

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.
