Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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!

Presentations were excellent. All types of aircraft -- more than I've seen at other places. Food was good at the grill. Priced right for quantity. Wear your walking shoes and bring a jacket even in warm weather because the hangars are chilly.

Must do if you are into air & space. Make sure you take the tram ride, very informative. Could spend a full day here.

My husband is the airplane freak, I was just along for the ride. I was amazed when I walked outside. The scope of aircraft was incredible. You are able to get on some of the planes (an old Airforce 1 from JFK) others you can just see from the outside. The test craft and fighter prototypes dazzled us both. Certainly sheds light on some of the mystery lights in the sky from many years ago. Well worth the admission cost!

There are a number of tours available including the "Boneyard" tour at Davis Monthan AFB near the museum. The Boneyard tour is well worth the price.

The tram tour will take you around the outdoor museum and is guided by very knowledgeable docents. We found this gave us a great deal of background when we walked the grounds later.

Hangers also have docents that are usually retired Air Force and they provide some great information on various aircraft.

There is a walking tour of some hangers that was well worth the price as well.

Food is available and cold drinks are available around the grounds.

Nice gift shop with some very interesting items and a good book selection.

Not to be missed on a visit to Tucson.
