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!

I just love the desert and this is such a neat place to visit. We did the tram tour and bone-yard. Also take some time and just walk the place, carry some water and enjoy. It's is incredible what has been spent over the years on planes, see where some of your tax dollars have gone. All of them are in great shape and the descriptions by the tram driver are really well done. My second visit and most likely will go again ! My mother inspected radios for the war effort and she said everyone worked 12 hour shifts and if you did not come to work the MP's ( that's military police) would come and get you ! Thomas

I've been visiting all the major air museums over the past decade and finally made it out here. Take the tram tour and sit and listen to the details. We did it twice to sit on both sides and see everything. Well worth it. The collection is top notch and the boneyard tour is not to be missed. Where else can you see 35 billion dollars of planes and parts just sitting there. Grab a bench and watch planes take off and land from the base. Really enjoyed the collection.

On the way to National Parks near Tucson, passed by the Pima Air & Space Museum and knew we had to make a special stop there. What a great decision -- more planes of all kinds than even saw from the road. The kids loved the Pregnant Guppy and I saw several different types of what I flew in the USAF. Even an Air Force One.

Such history here. Great place to be alone or with family. A lot of information. Look for coupons. When it is hot there is not a lot of shelter. You will get dusty. Wish you could see in more planes. The best is the boneyard. Loved visiting retired military planes.
