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!

We took the tram which was well worth an extra $7 on a hot day, plus the driver/docent was excellent. We learned so much more than if we had just walked.

The museum is really interesting for all ages! There are things for little kids and big kids too. Lots of old planes, lots of information. And there is a tour of the 'bone yard' where there are even more - I have no idea how many are out there - lined up and within a few days of being ready... More

Based nearby for work and had a day off to make good use of. It was suggested I visit the air museum since I'm a professional aviator. What a great day off experience, this is one of the best collections of aircraft I've ever seen on display. You can also take the optional tour of the "Boneyard" where all the... More

We went on a weekday, it was not too crowded, but we arrive too late to arrange to be on the tram tour of the boneyard - get there before noon, if you want to ride the tram. You are able to walk around the boneyard, so it wasn't any problem. Make sure to bring your water bottle as it... More

A trip to Tucson is incomplete without this museum for those interested in anything military. Was hoping to see the U2 Spy plane, but that was probably the only one not available. It's still flying. Hoping to bring back my only viewing, back in the late sixties. Fun to see all the exhibits and bring back memories for me and... More

This museum is the third largest in the US and is well maintained. They have a cafe and also a tram service around the outside displays. Certainly have some unusual airplanes from around the world.

We t with friends visiting from Wisconson. Had a wonderful time just walking around all the vintage planes both indoors snd out on the grounds. Be prepared for lots of walking and wear comfy shoes and bring a good size bottle of water for each guest. There are hundreds of planes and a fair variety of helicopters to view. It... More

This is a lovely museum, It seems to be staffed with some of the most knowledgable people on airplanes i have every met! The only comparator I can think of, is the air force museum in Hendon in the UK, which of course leans to the British side of things. The museum has three main areas, inside outside and the... More
