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 live in Tucson. I recently took my visiting brother-in-law to the Air & Space Museum. We both have an interest in aircraft (my father was a WWII bomber pilot and he worked in the aerospace industry) so we each found aircraft that spoke to...More

Almost every plane you can think of on display. Worth the admission price, a lot of walking though. Volunteers are very friendly and have great stories'

I was pretty amazed to see Blackbird in it's full beauty sitting in the hangar. This museum shows you very much of a modern history of airplanes. The one which i was very surprised to see was Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner parked outside. I missed F-16...More

I really enjoyed it. There is inside air conditioning areas with planes and great info. The outdoor is really interesting, not convenient for wheelchairs. There is a lovely restaurant.

If your into airplanes, you have to see this place. Second largest collection of planes in the USA. Almost takes two days to see it all.

Really interesting visit, with a very knowledgeable tour guide. To visit the warheads which it is claimed kept the peace for a number of years due to mutually assured destruction was enlightening. Some of the statistics quoted about the capabilities of these weapons in their...More

Be prepared to be amazed at the huge selection of aircraft here. We didn't spend enough time here to really appreciate it as we had the Bone Yard tour booked. Really worth a visit even if aircraft aren't your thing.

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.
