Overview

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!

Took my grandson and was really amazed of how many aircraft they had. Well worth the trip. My grandson was also amazed and was knowledgeable of many of the aircraft used in Viet Nam.

The air-conditioned tour bus was outstanding. Try to get a window seat for the best pictures. Our docent was former military and a pilot so she had inside knowledge of the planes and was very engaging. Pack water if you're visiting and planning on walking...More

The most awesome collection of airplanes outside of Washington DC. I saw giant planes that I didn't know existed. I brought an ex-Air-Force buddy and he totally loved it. We walked until our feet fell off. Then we got a hot dog at the "restaurant"...More

Even if you are not an aviation buff you could have a good time here. Lots of American History in the planes and the people honored here. The NASA Space museum was a great story of the Space Race and the people and equipment involved...More

We had a private event at Pima and it was great! They rolled out the red carpet for us. The museum was great. You can get so close to the planes and take as many pictures as you would like. The staff knows their facts....More

The museum is very interesting and has a wide range of things to view. To complete the trip, you need to take the boneyard tour. 5,000 piece of tax payers money fading in the desert. A real spectacle that has to be seen. Informative, interesting...More

Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson was definetely worth the time to go. My husband and I loved going through the exhibits both inside and outside. The staff was very friendly and the facilities were clean.

I have been here 20 times... having lived in tucson, I have worked at the Strategic Air and Space museum in Nebraska, and must say the varitety of the collection rivals only the Smithsonian and possibly the USAF museum.

Is this mostly outdoors? I am debating on whether this would be wise to explore in this summer heat.

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.
