This is a nice stop if you are heading to or from the Grand Canyon. It is about 33 miles north of Williams and the cost was nominal at around $7. Lots of patches for sale and several one of a kind aircraft.

Not so many planes, but numerous detailed displays lovingly filled with all aspects of flying. Definitely worth a visit if in the area.

Throughly enjoyed the museum and the people there. As retired USAF I found the planes a trip back in time! In addition, they had planes and cars from the WW2 era including British, Russian, Japanese and German planes and artifacts. A GREAT stop!

An interesting if somewhat limited collection of aircraft. From the rather tidy undercover aircraft in the hanger to the weather beaten hulks out the back its a fascinating place for any aeroplane fan to take a short break when returning from the south rim.

It takes a 45 minute drive from Flagstaff but if you are interested in aviation, it is worth it. Interesting aircraft and exhibits that you can get close to. Small boys loved it.

There is a great picture opportunity with a giant bronze bald eagle at the entrance and some vintage jet fighters and planes. It is not a real extensive collection but nice to walk around for a few minutes and snap some selfies.

This air museum is not very large, but it features several rare target drones. It also has a large exhibit dedicated to WWII pilots, adding human stories to engineering history. Located within 30 minutes drive from Grand Canyon, it is a great place to visit...More
