Be amazed at one of the world's largest aircraft collections: including 2+ 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) 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. 300 aircraft, 80 acres, 5 indoor air-cooled hangars. Just plane awesome!

This one is so good I would recommend a detour from as far as two or more hours away. If you are near Tucson it is an absolutely must-see if you have any interest in aircraft. I spent over 6 hours here which included time for lunch, the tram tour and the Boneyard tour [reviewed separately]. The five hangers of... More

Who knew that this gem existed in Arizona? I didn't. This is a wonderful tour. I would especially encourage any visitor to take the guided tram tour. I thought the docent was simply excellent. The "boneyard" tour of the adjacent military base was less interesting and could be skipped so that you have more time to view the huge collection... More

My husband and I made this trip to Tucson to see this attraction and it was worth the stop. We entered the museum through the gift shop. The fee was $7 each for the museum and for senior rate the bus tour was $12.75 and adult pass $15.50 so the entire tour for both of us was $42.25. The museum... More

Pima air and space museum is amazing. Every plane you can imagine is either on the field or in the hanger. Take the kids and make a day of it.

Wonderful Air Museum. On par with other aircraft museums I have visited (like EAA in Oshkosh, WI) Be sure to take the tour to the aircraft "graveyard".

There are quite a few displays involved, migs, presidential planes, fighters, cargo planes, and various planes never heard of. The planes are all displayed for easy access and your not pushed along with a tour, but take your time with the little ones stop and rest for awhile, and yes they have a cafeteria to relax in. The attractions are... More

For everyone that likes flying or a great interest in the history & development of flying, this is one air museum YOU MUST SEE. And I WARN YOU NOW - you will probably need more than one day to see everything properly. The docents that walk you through the displays inside the buildings are excellent and are all retired military... More

This tour is fabulous for those who are aviation/military aficionados. You could easily spend several hours on this tour. One of the options is a tour of the "boneyard", the outdoor storage facility of retired aircraft on the Davis Monthan Air Base. Very much worth spending most of a day.

We were in Tucson on one of the few rainy days in the year and the majority of the planes at the museum are outside, so we didn't know what to expect. As it turns out, they have 6 gigantic buildings with all of the most popular planes (B17, B24, B29, Catalina PBY, F15, etc) inside. We ran between the... More
