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!

Planning is essential for this attraction. The museum is huge. We stayed about four hours and didn't have time to see two of the buildings. Also we arrived around noon and found parking difficult. Many planes are outside and viewing them in the heat of the day can be draining. Overall the museum is impressive and worth the visit!

What a wonderful collection of Aviation equipment! This place has got to have one of the most extensive collections in the entire world. The volunteers and staff are EXTREMELY nice and very helpful. You will get a bit overwhelmed with the scope initially, but just take it hangar by hangar, and you'll make it through. 100% well worth a visit.

In the last few weeks I have been lucky enough to do the USS Intrepid in NYC, both Smithsonian complexes in DC, Fort Worth Aviation Museum and now here. This place beats them all hands down. The ability to get up close to the aircraft and in many look inside bomb bays or crew doors and alike makes this a... More

The best place you can go to see and enter dozens of historical airplanes. Literally hundreds of them.

At first, based on the online pictures, I thought it was going to be an aviation junkyard, but I decided to go anyway. THERE ARE 5 HANGARS full of precious aircraft from all of history. I even met a B17 pilot who went on 26 missions from WWII to Vietnam. Just go. You will not be disappointed. I stayed for... More

You can get lost walking around the aircraft, both inside and out that has been restored or in weathered condition. This museum is well run and if you're coming to Tucson or live here it's worth going to often as things are always changing.

The Pima Air Museum can be favorably compared with the US Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH, and the Air & Space Museum of the Smithsonian. It houses a large collection of mainly military aircraft in both an outdoor and indoor setting. For those unable (or unwilling) to walk around the big outdoor display, there is an electric shuttle that... More

I am a spouse not really into history or planes, I have to say it was very educational, informative and entertaining. We ended up staying almost 5 hours and we did not take the bus tour. I really had a good time.
