Overview

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) 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!

My family loves planes. Me not so much. But I do enjoy them being happy and looking at all the planes. It is interesting to to read about all the pilots from the early days of flying.

I was excited to visit the Pima Air & Space Museum for the first time, because my father was a member of the 315th Bomb Wing (featured in Hanger 4) which flew B29s from Guam at the end of WWII. The display had to be...More

A great place to view old airplanes of all kinds, displayed both indoors and outside depending on their size. Some unique aircraft are on display and some are on loan from the AF desert storage area across the street. Tours are also available for the...More

A very worthwhile hour or two spent here. The helicopter recordings from the Vietnam era were of particular interest to those of us who were teens in those days. And seeing the space capsules and retired jets and airplanes was interesting.

We went to see this display hoping to see the "boneyard" of bunches and bunches of planes. We did see the onsite ones, however, due to federal holiday the rest of the optional tour was closed. Extremely hot day(105 plus). Inside hangers was interesting and...More

This is a very extensive museum! Luckily, there is a good cafe so it is possible to refresh and renew before tackling the rest of the exhibits, after seeing some of them. Our biggest disappointment was the lack of stories. There is lots of technical...More

I'm not an airplane lover, but I really enjoyed this. There are many displays and lots of interesting history. Be sure to add on the Bone Yard tour of decommissioned aircraft at Davis-Monthan AF base.

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.
