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!

For aerospace nuts 1-day isn't even enough, much too much to see and do and the variety of aircraft is amazing. The walking tour is a must, it's only an hour or so. Our guide was a pilot who previously flew off the USS Shangra La, his stories and insights were facinating. Also make sure to chat up the volunteers at the various exhibits. Many were pilots or had some association with the exhibits and are more than happy to share the history and wondorful stories!

This is a fun way to spend an afternoon - unless you're an airplane / flight / space junkie, in which case you'd better reserve the whole day.

It seems a bit pricey to get in, but there's so much to see there. We especially enjoyed touring Air Force One, seeing the reconnaissance planes, and checking out the space discovery hangar. They run on no tax money, so it's quite amazing what they've accomplished.

Our baby didn't like the tram ride, so they were kind enough to refund mom's fare. Mom and baby found stuff to do inside the hangars, no problem.
