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, 10-day Advanced Reservations Required) 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. 350 aircraft, 80 acres, 6 indoor air-cooled hangars. Just plane awesome!

Stunning and overwhelming collection of aircraft, ranging from an extensive array of jet fighters to some really unique aircraft. Particularly enjoyed the B52, the huge Russian helicopter, and the SR71. We spent three hours only to discover that we missed 1/3 of the collection. Hope...More

When we were planning our first trip to Arizona we penciled in this attraction first and built our trip around it. Pima Air and space museum totally exceeded my expectations. We visited in February so we had clear blue sky but not so hot. We...More

Went here for a few hours before our flight out of Tucson and had a great time. It’s incredible the amount of planes and other aviation related memorabilia they have on site. Added bonus that the Air Force base is right across the street meaning...More

The museum is large and somewhat idiosyncratic in lay-out, but this is made up for by the many volunteers with connections to the planes and equipment at the museum. The B-17 hangar had a volunteer who'd flown B-17's in WWII there answering questions. Our tram...More

The museum combines both indoor and huge outdoor space. The most complete collection of war planes imaginable. Even more amazing are the miles and miles of mothballed planes (around 4000 in number) that are waiting fur eventual further (re)use or future disposal. Although this part...More

There was a wife variety of planes, admission is reasonable, and the guided tours were worth it and well done. Strongly would recommend taking the guided tours.

You can’t see it all in one visit. At least take the one hour tram ride with narration by pleasant volunteer docents. Arrive early and avoid the noon heat. Since my first visit in the early 70s the number of planes and helicopters has exploded....More

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.
