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!

This museum is excellent. The walk outdoors to see the old planes and jets is a lot of fun. Plan on wearing good walking shoes and carrying plenty of water as this walk can be long and hot. Inside the hangers are hundreds of planes....More

I am not a fan of aeroplanes but the husband is so as a dutiful wife I trotted along. It proved to be an excellent day out. We went on the tram ride around the museum and the volunteer's commentary was pitched just right -...More

There were a lot of different types of planes They had fun things for the kids to do. The staff was very helpful and knowledgable The tram should have included in the cost but it was six dollars more to see the planes outside

This is an impressive collection of airplanes - JFK's Air Force One, B52s, all kinds of WW11 planes, etc., etc, etc. Lots and lots of walking, but they do have a cart that will take you around the grounds. Probably more for the gentlemen, but...More

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.
