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!

Great static display of aircraft. I was disappointed that the boneyard tour was sold out already. Apparently they sell out for each day's tours within an hour or two of opening and you can't buy them online. There are still a lot of planes to see at the actual museum though. There is a tram that costs extra but will... More

If you are into airplanes this is one of the best places to see them in the USA. I think only the Air Force museum and the Smithsonian are larger. I've been there at least 6 times and never tire of going back. There are several hangars and you could spend a day in each one if you took the... More

My husband visits every time we find ourselves in a Tucson. He says it never gets old as they rotate exhibits. If you love history, military or flight, spend a day here

If you love planes and history, this is a great place to visit. As part of our tour, we went to the boneyard. I had no idea there are so many types of planes. The museum is fascinating and the volunteers are so knowledgeable. I learned so many interesting facts about WWII.

A huge museum with hundreds of planes and helicopters to see. Indoor and outdoor exhibits. Long line to enter when we arrived at 9:30 am on a Friday- not sure if this was a fluke or typical. We walked the main hanger and then took the tram ride around the outdoor area. My husband and his friend seemed to really... More

Enjoyed a 6 hours walking around both the muesum and the grounds around the faciluity. The indoor muesum is intersting and the staff is very helpful, informative and passionate about their planes. wear comfortable shoes and be ready for a day in the sun if you are walking the grounds. The snack bar has very good food and bottled water.

Most reviews cannot convey the sheer size of the Pima Air & Space Museum. Entry into the main hall provides no special clues, but once you believe the exhibits have been exhausted, you leave the hall for outside and discover a new world of preserved aviation, both outside in the benign Arizona climate or inside another several halls. Even the... More

The U.S. sends her retired planes to Arizona.. Therefore the Pima Air & Space Museum has a wonderful assortment of past present planes from across the country.This could be a destination!
