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 only had time to take a tour to the boneyard and it was terrific, though a bit sad to see all of those planes sitting there.

Took my Sister-in-Law and Nephew (an airline pilot for Copa Airlines out of Panama) to the Pima Air and Space Museum. We went on a Wednesday, so there were plenty of people there, but not overcrowded. I think we spent about 4 hours there, but could easily spent another 12. If you go, be sure to take the tram tour.... More

I've been to multiple Air museums and this is one of the best. They have airplanes here you won't find anywhere else. They also have an excellent display of Women in Aviation. The best preserved airplanes are inside. These are painted and look like they did in their heyday. They have a gorgeous B-17 and a real WWII B-17 pilot... More

If you are an aircraft aficionado or simply have an interest in airplanes of ALL types you must go to this facility. You will first take an hour and a half tram ride for $7.00 over the $15.00 entry cost to the museum to view the outdoor static display of aircraft such as Kennedy's Air Force one. And many other...

I was not sited what to expect and found this to be a great night venue for conference. The staff is extremely knowledgeable because they have flown some of these planes. The reception was well done. Nice open bar and good food. This would be a good place to hold an event.

Suitable for everyone really but absolutely a must see for anyone with a love or interest in aviation. Spent at least 4 hours seeing everything however I think the highlight was in fact the guided tram tour which was extremely interesting. Honestly don't miss it. All the exhibits are wonderfully kept and presented with volunteers abound to answer questions.

I really enjoyed my visit. Priced fairly for all I saw and learned. I took the tour trolley and our driver was knowledgeable and informative. All the tour guides keep it interesting. A must see even if you know little about air craft such as myself. I will go back and take my husband.
